Osseous hydatid disease is rare, and it is even rare to see it in extremities or pelvis. At times these lesions present as destructive lesions on radiographs and mimic neoplasm. Here we present two such cases, one arising in the lower end of femur mimicking chondrosarcoma and required excision and surgical stabilization. Second case presented as a cystic lesion in iliac bone suggestive of aneurysmal bone cyst. Both are quite unusual presentation and hydatid disease should always be kept in differential while dealing with such lesion
Keywords: Osseous hydatid disease, chondrosarcoma, aneurysmal bone cyst
