      Abstract

      This article presents magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of a patient affected with disseminated hydatid disease associated with a uniloculated cyst lodged in the infratemporal fossa. The lesion mainly caused buccal prominence, dysphonia, and exophthalmos. To the author's knowledge, this is the first reported instance of a hydatid cyst in the infratemporal fossa demonstrated with MRI.
