Author(s): Alireza Rostami, Naser Keykhali and Gholamreza Nouri Broujerdi*

We reported a 23-year-old female, 2 months pregnant presented with cough and blood streaked sputum (Hemoptysis) since two weeks ago. Chest CT scan showed simultaneous multiple cystic lesions in the lungs and heart. After therapeutic abortion, the patient was operated via median sternotomy incision and all hydatid cysts were extracted of the lung and heart. The patient was discharged after one week with good condition. The abdominal and pelvic sonography of the patient was also normal with no cystic lesions. No endo-bronchial lesions or malignant cells were reported in bronchoscopy
