Cardiac echinococcosis is a rare disease. Depending on the location of hydatid cyst in the heart, clinical presentation can be an asymptomatic case or lethal stroke, arrhythmias, valvular dysfunction, cardiac tamponade, cardiac failure, shock, and even death. Treatment of choice for cardiac hydatid cysts is surgical excision, even in an asymptomatic patient. We present a case report of an asymptomatic case of off-pump removal of intramyocardial hydatid cyst. A 21-year-old male presented asymptomatically and was diagnosed with a hydatid cyst incidentally during a regular checkup. Echocardiography and cardiac computed tomography angiography images demonstrated an intramyocardial hydatid cyst on the lateral aspect of the left ventricle with slight extension over the anterior and posterior regions. Important aspects of diagnosis and management specific to cardiac hydatid cyst along with the review of literature have been discussed.
