Meditsinskaya Parazitologiya i Parazitarnye Bolezni ( 2): 58

The elk, an intermediate host of Echinococcus granulosus in Yakutiya

Data on the participation of elks in the life cycle of E. granulosus in Yakutiya, USSR, are collated. Hydatid cysts were found in 32 (76.2%) of 42 elks. The cysts were present in the lungs of all the infected animals; hepatic cysts were found in 2 cases only. Wolves are the source of infection for the elks, and 29 (55.8%) of 52 wolves examined were infected with the tapeworm.
