INTRODUCTION: Hydatid cyst is a parasitic infection caused by the larval form of Echinococcus granulosis. Portal hypertension is an unusual postoperative complication after a liver hydatid cyst surgery. CASE PRESENTATION: To illustrate this rare condition, we present the case of a 32-year-old patient operated for a liver hydatid cyst with late-onset postoperative complications. The patient suffered from secondary digestive bleeding because of portal hypertension and was therefore treated with a distal splenorenal shunt (Warren). CONCLUSION: Surgery of hydatid cyst may cause severe complications like portal hypertension and in certain cases, distal splenorenal anastomosis might represent an important treatment option that needs to be performed in specialised centres.
