Abstract A male resident in Vanuatu with prior history of employment as a hunt kennel-man in England (1980-2001) was surgically treated for the removal of a hydatid cyst subsequently confirmed as Echinococcus granulosus (G1 genotype). This is the first human molecularly identified CE case reported from the UK and a first in a fox-hound handler and indicates a general neglected occupational risk.
