Starting from 1991 the Central Office of Statistics ISTAT, according to changed regulations on notification of infective diseases, stopped reporting official national data on human hydatidosis. On the other hand until then notified data, concerning only about a hundred cases per year in mean during the last decades and just 36 in 1991, appeared unreliable, suggesting a diffusion far from the actual. Owing to specific studies on different research groups it is possible to try to describe a not… Expand
Epidemiology of hydatidosis in the province of Sassari, Italy.
Control measures led to a significant decline in the incidence rate of hydatidosis during the period 1964-2002, dropping by 27.6 per 100,000. Expand
A retrospective analysis of human cystic echinococcosis in Sardinia (Italy), an endemic Mediterranean region, from 2001 to 2005.
Compared to the past, incidence rates appear to be decreasing both for pulmonary and hepatic localizations, while there is a reversal of the CE "urbanization" trend resulting in "ruralization", accompanied by a greater degree of parasite ecological "isolation" and focus-points of infection risk.

Cystic Echinococcosis in Spain: Current Situation and Relevance for Other Endemic Areas in Europe
It is believed that the introduction of national registries for CE with online data entry, following the example set by the European Registry for Alveolar Echinococcosis, would help streamline data collection on CE by eliminating the need for evaluating and integrating data from multiple regions, by avoiding duplication of data from patients who access several different health facilities over time.

Heterogeneous distribution of human cystic echinococcosis after a long-term control program in Neuquén, Patagonia Argentina.
Standard control measures, despite long-term implementation, are not able to produce a sustained improvement of the epidemiological status of the disease, suggesting that further studies are required in order to adequate the control actions in Neuquén. Expand
Worldwide epidemiology of liver hydatidosis including the Mediterranean area.
The purpose of this review is to examine the distribution of E. granulosus and the epidemiology of a re-emerging disease such as cystic echinococcosis, currently considered an endemic zoonotic disease in the Mediterranean region. Expand
Prevalence of echinococcosis in humans, livestock and dogs in northern Italy
Establishing a National Registry of Cystic Echinococcosis is suggested with the aim of highlighting regional risk factors and to benefit from its matching both clinical and epidemiological data. Expand
Control of cystic echinococcosis/hydatidosis: 1863-2002.
This review assesses the impact of 13 of the hydatid control programmes implemented, since the first was introduced in Iceland in 1863, and concludes that two countries, Iceland and New Zealand, and one island-state, Tasmania, had already declared that hyd atid disease had been eliminated from their territories.

Unexpected discovery of massive liver echinococcosis. A clinical, morphological, and functional diagnosis.
We report a case of symptomatic massive liver echinococcosis due to Echinococcus granulosus, unexpectedly found in a 34 year old woman living in Apulia, Italy. Based on size (max diameter 18 cm),Expand
Canine leishmaniasis surveillance in a northern Italy kennel.
The results confirm the northward spread of CanL towards areas not previously affected by autochthonous foci, and identify a stable focus of leishmaniasis in an area that was not considered eco-compatible with the presence of the vector and infection. Expand
Cystic echinococcosis in Europe and in Italy
In this review, an attempt is made to assess the present epidemiological situation of Echinococcosis in Europe and Italy. Expand
