Hydatid cyst is common in the liver and lung but extremely rare in pelvic cavity. Pelvic hydatid cyst may present with pressure symptoms on ureter or urinary bladder and may result in bilateral hydronephrosis or retention of urine. Bilateral hydroureteronephrosis is one of the rare presentations of pelvic hydatid disease. Hereby, we report two cases of primary pelvic hydatid cyst: one was with bilateral hydronephrosis with nonfunctioning right kidney and another was asymptomatic.
