Hydatid disease as such is not common in India and only a few cases of spinal hydatidosis have been reported in Indian literature (Nigam and Gharpure 1954, Pritam Das 1957, Chitkara 1957, Aggarwal and Singh 1962, Shrivastava and Ansari 1964, Editorial 1973), Hydatid disease of femur was reported by Jonathan and Mclean (1977). The present case of hydatid disease of lumbosacral spine is reported not so much because of the rarity of the lesion but because of the fact that spondylolisthesis is extremely rare complication of the disease. Brailsford (1953) reported a case in which hydatid disease of sacroiliac region produced a deformity resembling spondylolisthesis. In India Shrivastava and Ansari (1964) reported hydatid disease of spine producing psuedospondylolisthesis. Apart from this interesting report we have not been able to find a similar case recorded in the literature.
