Echinococcosis of the liver is so rare in our practice that the case presented is the only one documented in the records of Henry Ford Hospital. The massive enlargement of the liver required surgical intervention. Marsupialization was the treatment of choice. In spite of post-operative complications, the patient made a satisfactory recovery.
