We report a 76-year-old woman presented with a 54 x 66 mm multivesicular cardiac hydatid cystic mass located in right heart chambers demonstrated by two-dimensional echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging. This case stresses the importance of MRI differentiating multivesicular cardiac hydatid cyst with a solid mass image which contains less liquid and more scolexes from cardiac tumours especially angiosarcoma.
