Hydatidosis is one of the most important zoonotic diseases in the world. In this report, we describe a 25-year-old patient from Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh who presented with cough, chest pain, dyspnoea, and hemoptysis due to hydatid disease of the lung. Although it is one of the less common causes of hemoptysis, hydatid disease of the lung requires greater attention in countries such as India, where hydatid cyst disease is common.
