Hydatid cyst of the spermatic cord is very rare. We report a case of hydatid cyst of the spermatic cord revealed by right acute testis miming a testicular torsion. The diagnosis was made per and postoperatively on the basis of the clinical appearance of the cyst and pathology. The cyst was completely removed without breaking it and the patient did not present with a recurrence during follow-up.
