Alveolar Echinococcosis (AE) persists endemically in various regions worldwide. Due to the scarce number of cases, it depicts the Achilles’ heel regarding contemporary clinical and most of all surgical interventions. The aim of our study represents proper evaluation and establishment of assiduous therapeutic mapping in cases of hepatic hydatid cysts, emphasizing optimal surgical procedures and increasing optimal survival. Additionally, further extensive research will be presented, focusing on recent bibliography, using comprehensive references from databases such as PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane database, in order to depict proper surgical interventions.
