Introduction: Hydatidosis can be counted among the most important zoonotic diseases in the world. Echinococcosis is an endemic disease especially in Turkey; however, hydatid disease of the lung is rare and usually results from Echinococcus granulosus.

Case Presentation: A 12-year-old boy was admitted in the hospital with a history of cough and hemoptysis for one year. Bronchoscopy showed endobronchial lesion and the diagnosis of hydatid disease was confirmed by pathological examination.

Conclusion: In spite of being one of the less common causes of hemoptysis, hydatid disease of the lung requires greater attention in countries such as Turkey, where hydatid cyst disease can be seen so common.
