Objective: Lung hydatid cyst is an infectious disease caused by the parasite Echinococcus granulosus. Surgery is the main treatment of the disease in lung hydatid cysts. In our article, we aimed to share our experiences with our patients who underwent surgical treatment for hydatid cysts of the lungs. Methods: The data of 41 patients who underwent surgical treatment for pulmonary hydatid cysts in our clinic were analyzed retrospectively. The factors affecting the success of surgical treatment were analyzed. Results: Eighteen (43.9%) of the patients were male and 23 (56.1%) were female. There was no statistically significant difference between the size groups in terms of length of hospital stay (p=0.070). No statistically significant correlation was found between the number of lesions and postoperative complications (p=0.367). Conclusion: Lung hydatid cysts are a public health problem that can be seen in all age groups. Although different symptoms and complications related to the disease are encountered in lung hydatid cysts, surgery is an effective treatment method with low recurrence, morbidity and mortality.
