Hydatid disease of bone is an uncommon clinical condition. It is located in certain isolated pockets in the world. Clinical diagnosis is many a times missed and is diagnosed after a biopsy. The treatment is difficult because of late presentation and diffuse nature of the infestation. During a period of 6 years we have treated 5 cases. Of these one was cured, 2 had satisfactory result and 2 were untraceable. The treatment of choice has been radical surgery with or without local irrigation with fresh super saturated saline solution or formaldehyde with fresh super saturated saline solution or formaldehyde solution.
