Hyadatidosis was diagnosed in three sheep and one goat out of 10 sheep and three goat necropsied over a period of one year. Grossly, hydatid cysts were mainly found on lungs and liver and were of varied size. Cysts were filled with a clear or turbid fluid, ranges from 10ml to 25ml. Histopathological section of the affected lungs and liver revealed laminated hyaline layer surrounded by thick coat of granulation tissue causing fibrosis and infiltration of leucocytes. The adjoining areas of the cysts showed alveolar emphysema, vascular congestion and haemorrhages in lung and progressive focal pressure atrophic lesions with vacuolar degeneration in liver
