Intracranial alveolar echinococcosis is an uncommon disease and difficult to treat. Three patients with central nervous system (CNS) involvement are reported, and the surgical treatment of the mono-massive type is emphasized. The largest mass lesion reported, so far, in the literature (9.0 × 6.5 × 4.5 cm) was extirpated in one of our cases. Related problems are discussed in combination with the literature.
