ABSTRACT: An 11-year-old girl presented with chronic abdominal pain and right upper abdominal swelling for 3 months. A CT Scan was suggestive of Hydatid or a simple liver cyst. Ultrasonography suggested a Hydatid cyst of the Liver. After induction, the swelling disappeared completely, and Ryle's tube aspiration showed an infected greenish fluid. An on table ultrasonography confirmed the cyst to be smaller. A Gastroscopy confirmed a perforation in the lesser curvature of the stomach with the infected greenish fluid pouring into it. A similar fluid was drained from the liver cyst, which ultimately confirmed our diagnosis of the liver cyst having ruptured into the stomach. A histopathological examination confirmed the hydatid nature of the cyst.
