Multivesicular hydatid cyst in the left lobe of liver shows well-defined fluid collections in a honeycomb pattern with multiple septa, which representing the walls of the daughter cysts.
The honeycomb pattern is a very characteristic sign, which helps in diagnosing hydatid cysts. The honeycomb pattern within a cyst is due to multiple small daughter vesicular cysts present within it.
