There was an atypical mass image in computed tomography of the patient who admited to our clinic after an unconscious condition. This atypic spherical mass, about 5 cm in diameter, was at the left parieto-temporal region. There were calcificated regions at the perifer of the mass, but central region was isodence.

The mass was diagnosed as a dead cerebral cyst hydatid according to clinical and histopathological studies that made during the postoperative period.

We learned that such a case was not reported in the literature. For that reason this rare case was reported. The pertinent literature was reviewed. Anahtar Kelimeler : Cerebral cyst hydatid, Cyst hydaitd, Dead cyst hydatid
