Pulmonary hydatid cysts are common in endemic regions but isolated active pulmonary hydatid cyst, which is communicated with bronchus, is not a common finding in adult population. Here we present a case of 35-year-old male who presented with breathlessness, cough with expectoration, chest pain and a homogenous rounded opacity of right lower zone on chest X ray. Ultrasound, contrast enhanced computed tomography revealing mass like lesion with multiple internal air pockets with ring enhancement and expectoration of salty material with complete clearing of the lesion following a cough bout confirmed the diagnosis of complicated hydatid cyst communicating with bronchus.

Key words:
Complicated, Hydatid cyst, Isolated, Intrabronchial, Lung, Rupture
