Results: Our results show variations over the growing prevalence, we observed for bovine hydatid cyst in liver and lung average values (95.16% -96.16%) respectively in the Algiers Constantine during the four years. for sheep we mean prevalence for liver and lung (96.14% - 94.84%) respectively in the regions of Ourgla and Ghardaia, whereas the goats we in the same order (90 , 01% - 82.98%) respectively in the regions of Bejaia and Tipaza.
