Özet

In this study, an extremely rare case of a gigantic cerebral hydatid cyst is presented. A right frontotemporal hydatid cyst was detected by computed tomography and magnetic resonance imag-ing. This lesion was extirpated successfully with intact contents with the aid of a neuronavigation system. The literature is reviewed and possible postoperative complications are discussed with the published reports.
