Abstract

In a survey of 1100 cattle slaughtered between December 1976 and September 1978, there were 468 cases of echinococcosis (42.12%) and 19 of cysticercosis (1.73%). Echinococcus cysts were found in 365 livers and 340 lungs. The liver was affected by disease in 79% of cattle and the lung in 73%. Other...

The occurrence of parasites in slaughter animals between 1980-1991 in the Olsztyn province was analysed. Out of 2 231 633 slaughter pigs trichinellosis was found in 20 animals (0.0009%), hydatidosis in 9037 (4.047%), cysticercosis in 80 (0.0036%) and liver fluke in 27 (0.0012%). In cattle (221 971...

Abstract

The problems presented by cysticerciasis/taeniasis and by echinococcosis/hydatid in developing African countries are outlined. The high incidence of Cysticercus bovis still leads to much condemnation of slaughtered stock and the human infection rate with taeniasis reaches 70% in some areas. At...
