  Orbital hydatidosis is a rare clinical entity that most often affects children and young adults living in rural areas. It is secondary to the orbital development of the taenia Echinococcus granulosus. This aberrant location of hydatidosis is serious because of its consequences, especially of a functional nature, hence the interest of prevention. Morocco is an endemic country where hydatidosis still prevales and is a non-exceptional cause of exophthalmia. We report the case of a 43-year-old patient, in whom an evolutionary unilateral exophthalmia had revealed an orbital hydatic cyst.
