ABSTRACT Hydatid disease is one of the common parasitic infestations in many parts of the world with involvement of any organ inside the human body. Ocular hydatid cyst is one of such locations and is a relatively rare entity. However, with the help of MRI imaging and super added benefit of MRI Spectroscopy, the diagnosis of hydatid cyst can be reached to with great confidence, which dictates the proper line of management in such patients.
