Solitary hydatid cyst in the forearm: A case report
Published in the International Journal of Surgical Case Reports, the authors present a rare case of a solitary intramuscular forearm hydatid cyst in a 32-year-old woman.

The cyst exhibited positive radiological findings and was treated surgically, leading to a complete resolution of the patient’s symptoms with no history of recurrence.

This case was unique because although the patient presented in her fourth decade of life and lived in a Gulf country, the hydatid cyst was in a solitary and unusual location and had been present for one year.

It had all positive findings in a radiological investigation without any signs of systemic illness. Additionally, the cyst was attached to the median nerve and a complete excision was performed without affecting the nerve.
