Human liver-fluke infection due to Fasciola hepatica. Epidemiological studies on 121 cases seen over 25 years

Human liver-fluke infection due to Fasciola hepatica. Epidemiological studies on 121 cases seen over 25 years

Bulletin de la Societe de Pathologie Exotique 75(3): 291-300

Of the 121 cases of human fascioliasis diagnosed in the Haute-Vienne region of France between 1955 and 1979, 116 were infected from eating watercress, 4 from dandelions and 1 from corn salad (Valerianella). Human infection occurred almost every year of the 25 studied but there were more cases in those years when there were heavy infections in cattle and sheep.
