Bilateral hydatid cyst of lung in a child is a challenge to anaesthesiologist. The benefits of one lung versus two lung ventilation is still a question. A 9-yr-old male child presented with respiratory distress. The chest X-ray showed the presence of two cysts bilaterally in the lung fields. A possibility of bilateral hydatid cyst in lung was considered. The child was taken up for emergency single stage bilateral thoracotomy under general anaesthesia. Two lung ventilation technique was used. Postoperatively the child was kept on controlled ventilation in the paediatric intensive care unit. The child was weaned off from ventilatory support and extubated 48 hours after the surgery.
