The prevalence of cysticercosis and hydatidosis in Ethiopian sheep


, : The prevalence of cysticercosis and hydatidosis in Ethiopian sheep. Veterinary Parasitology 28(3): 267-270

Five hundred and sixty sheep, slaughtered at an Addis Ababa abattoir, were examined for cysticercosis and hydatidosis. The prevalence of the metacestodes of Taenia hydatigena was 37.1% and that of Echinococcus granulosus 16.4%. In addition, the age and sex prevalences of hydatid cysts, their organ distribution and the ratio of fertile cysts were determined.
