Introduction: Hydatid cysts are much less common in the abdomen than in the lungs, and the most common organ involved in the abdomen is the liver, although it is rarely seen in the spleen alone or in multiple organs. The patient was a 25-year-old man who presented with LUQ pain that started one month ago and with a mild non-intermittent nature and it gradually increased. On ultrasound of the patient, multiple cysts in the spleen area were reported. CT scan images also showed evidence of multiple Hydatid cysts. The abdomen was opened. There were several cystic masses that were carefully removed. After 5 days, the patient was in good general condition. oral Mebendazole was prescribed and the patient discharged from the hospital. Although splenic Hydatid cysts are very rare, they are associated with involvement of other organs in the abdomen, as well as the high risk of rupture and anaphylactic shock before and during surgery. This group of hydatid cysts requires special medical care and surgery. Conditions of involvement of several surgical intra-abdominal organs with special care before and during surgery are the basis of treatment of this group of patients.
