Pulmonary parenchymal hydatid cysts are uncommon entities even in endemic areas. Extra-parenchymal intra-pleural hydatid cysts are even rarer. We report a case of a 42-year-old male who developed massive unilateral pleural effusion following rupture of intra-pleural hydatid cyst. The objective of this case report is to highlight upon this not so common cause of pleural effusion and assess the attendant complications and possible modes of management.
