Iran is located in endemic zone of this disease and due to existence of sheep husbandry jobs, Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province has the potential of high prevalence of the disease. Therefore this descriptive study was performed to find the seroepidemioloy of Hydatic cyst in human in this area. Serum samples of 1000 blood donors and about 1500 patients who had laboratory diagnostic tests were subjected to immunoelectrophoresis test in order to find possible infection Hydatic cyst. The prevalence of Hydatid cyst (Seroepidemiology) was 4.8%. The prevalence of the disease among male and female patient was 4.4% and 5.1% respectively. Te city of Lordegan had the highest (17.6%) and the city of Ardal had the lowest (1.9%) prevalence of the disease.
