Abstract

Autochthonous hydatidosis in France and western Europa are uncommon since the beginning of the 21st century. We report here an authentic indigenous cystic echinococcosis case in a French shepherd. The risk of remerging pathology should not be neglected and measures to interrupt parasite transmission are still relevant.
