Fasciola gigantica and Fasciola hepatica infections of the Vietnamese swamp buffalo (Bubalus bubalis): prevalence and histopathology



Fasciola gigantica and Fasciola hepatica infections of the Vietnamese swamp buffalo (Bubalus bubalis): prevalence and histopathology



Revue de Medecine Veterinaire 150(7): 645-650



In a survey of 955 swamp buffalo livers at an abattoir in Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) from January to July 1998, 440 (46.07%) were infected: 135 (14.14%) with F. gigantica only and 305 (32.04%) with F. gigantica and F. hepatica. The mean number of flukes was 78 in infected livers, with a low number of F. hepatica (mean = 5.8). The weights of infected livers and gall bladders were increased respectively by 29% and 25.2%.
