We are describing a case of 25 year old patient, who was admitted with onset of painful jaundice. Initial abdominal ultrasound and subsequently performed abdominal CT scan showed a lobulated cystic pancreatic head tumour, containing calcifications and one calcified liver lesion. Based on these findings, malignancy in the head of pancreas with liver metastases was suspected. Multiloculation, tumour location and young age were misleading, despite the positivity of antibodies to Echinococcus granulosus. Eventually patient underwent surgery that confirmed the rare diagnosis of pancreatic echinococcosis.
