Human hydatid cyst is an endemic disease and its distribution is worldwide affecting many countries in the Northern Africa as well as other parts of the world. This disease is a major public health problem in our country. The incidence of the disease has been increasing in the absence of an effective prevention policy. In addition to liver and lung localization representing 90% of the disease, other organs and tissues are spared. Acute recurrent pancreatitis caused by the presence of hydatid membranes in the biliary tract is very rare disease. This is considered unusual. We report a case of acute recurrent pancreatitis in a female patient who had presented an acute pancreatitis six months ago.
