Preoperative evaluation of the liver with hydatid cyst and surrounding tissue structures is extremely important for planning the course of surgery. The first experience of treating a patient with a parasitic cyst using a 3D reconstruction of the liver with hydatid cyst at the preoperative stage was presented. Thus, this approach allowed us to avoid the development of intraoperative complications and to obtain a good result of treatment.
