A rare case of solitary subcutaneous Hydatid disease presenting as an inguinal lump is reported. Fine needle aspiration was attempted assuming the lesion to be an inguinal mass. Aspirates revealed Scolices and hooklets of Echinococcus Granulosus. A diagnosis of Hydatid disease was made, which was further confirmed on histopathological examination. The aim of this article is to highlight this rare location of Hydatid cyst.
