Description Hydatid disease (HD) is prevalent in South Africa, with cardiac HD being a rare but important manifestation to recognise and diagnose. An incidental finding on computed tomography (CT) of the chest in a patient with pulmonary HD prompted further multimodality imaging, which confirmed the presence of cardiac HD involving the interventricular septum. This case report focuses on imaging findings related to cardiac HD, as demonstrated by the CT of the chest and two- and three-dimensional transoesophageal echocardiography. Multimodality imaging is essential to assist in making a diagnosis and providing a detailed assessment of patients with cardiac HD.
