Hydatid cyst disease is an important public health problem in some countries including Turkey. Hydatid disease is most commonly seen in the liver and lungs, but rarely in the spleen, kidney, pancreas, ovaries and abdominopelvic cavity. In this report, a 29-year-old women with a isolated splenic hydatid cyst who underwent laparoscopic splenectomy is presented. Laparoscopic splenectomy remains the treatment of choice because it demonstrates low morbidity and mortality rates.
