The elk, an intermediate host of Echinococcus granulosus in Yakutiya

, : The elk, an intermediate host of Echinococcus granulosus in Yakutiya. Meditsinskaya Parazitologiya i Parazitarnye Bolezni ( 2): 58

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.
