A ciliated hepatic foregut cyst is a rare cystic lesion of the liver. A 25-year-old man who was referred from an area endemic for hydatid cysts, presented with abdominal pain. Clinical, paraclinical, and imaging studies all suggested the presence of a hydatid cyst. Pathological studies after the resection of the cyst showed the presence of a ciliated hepatic foregut cyst.
