A hydatid cyst is a parasitic disease caused by the tapeworm Echinococcus granulosus. It is endemic in many areas, including New Zealand, Australia, and the Mediterranean region. Pulmonary hydatid disease can be diagnosed incidentally in asymptomatic patients or may cause symptoms such as cough, chest pain, dyspnea, fever, and hemoptysis both in patients with ruptured and nonruptured cysts. Anaphylactic reaction is a rare presentation of pulmonary hydatid cyst disease. In this case report, we report an unusual anaphylactic reaction following pulmonary hydatid cyst rupture secondary to blunt chest trauma.
