Abstract: Thoracic extension of hepatic hydatid disease through transdiaphragmatic route occurs as rare but serious complication. We report a case presented as pleural effusion with consolidation on X-RAY and diagnosis of transdiaphragmatic rupture of hepatic hydatid was suspected on USG abdomen and confirmed by CT. Transdiaphragmatic thoracic involvement is one of the important to recognize as it ranges from simple to life-threatening complications. Diaphragmatic tear will be suspected on ultrasonography but CT is most important in showing defect. Transdiaphragmatic extension of hepatic hydatid is important to diagnose due to serious consequences like infection or destruction of surrounding structures. Radiological imaging in hepatic hydatid plays major role in diagnosing complications and planning management.
