Khuzestan province in the south west of Iran having several seasonal and permanent lagoons which are shelter for domestic and migratory birds including, fish-eating birds. This research study was carried out to find the intestinal helminth parasites of birds in this ecosystem and evaluation of their medically importance with emphasis on heterophyid trematodes. For these reasons, the total of 37 birds including; Himantopus himantopus, Fulica atra, Egretta grazetta, Bubulcus ibis, Ceryle rudis… Expand

Figures from this paper

Snail transmitted diseases are one of the major group of helminth parasitic diseases which have been established by trematode parasites. The larvae of trematodes (cercariae) use the snails as host.Expand
The first record of Ascocotyle (Phagicola) longa (Digenea: Heterophyidae) metacercariae as the fish-borne zoonotic trematode in Chelon auratus and Chelon saliens (Pisces: Mugilidae) around the cage culture in the Caspian Sea, Iran
Morphological and morphometric analyses indicated that this parasite species belongs to Ascoctyle (Phagicola) longa, a widespread and rife fishborne zoonotic parasite and one of the most notable agents of human heterophyosis observed in the Caspian Sea. Expand
Infection of the Jackal (Canis aureus) by Haplorchis taichui (Trematoda: Heterophyidae) in Southwestern Iran: A Clue for Potential Human Infection
Further studies with the application of reliable molecular tools to diagnose trematode infections in wildlife and humans can bring more insight into the epidemiology of fish-borne flukes including H. taichui in this area. Expand
Checklist of digenean trematodes of Iran.
This is the checklist of digenean parasites reported from Iran representing a total of 118 species, from 105 genera, 43 families, 21 subfamilies, and 3 orders that are reported from 139 species of different hosts including humans. Expand
Gastrointestinal parasitic infection in diverse species of domestic birds of Manipur, India
Domesticated birds reared in valley districts of Manipur were investigated for intestinal protozoan and helminthic infections and 10 species of intestinal parasites were encountered, including protozoans Eimeria and Isospora were the most common. Expand
Fishborne zoonotic heterophyid infections: An update
In this review, the most updated knowledge on the morphology, biology, epidemiology, pathogenesis and pathology, immunology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis and treatment, and prevention and control of fishborne zoonotic heterophyid infections is provided. Expand
Parasites of the digestive tract in free‐ranging birds in Greece
A total of 136 digestive tracts and faecal samples were collected from free‐ranging birds originating from different parts of Greece and were evaluated for the presence of gastrointestinal parasites, finding 6 protozoan, 11 trematode, 5 cestode, 19 nematode and 7 acanthocephalan species found.

The effect of grower feed diet supplemented with Ganoderma lucidum against some enteric zoonotic parasites of pigeons (Columba livia)
The low population of helminth parasites and overall weight decrease of pigeon fed with diet supplemented with Ganderma lucidum recorded during the study suggest improved removal of digestive microbes, intestinal health, and gastrointestinal motility in poultry farming. Expand

Using SEM studies showed that the body surface of two trematodes were covered by contact receptors, several types of sensory tegumental papillae which may have useful function in orientation and feeding through increasing the surface area of absorption, could also play a role in sensation or in selection of the materials for ingestion by the fluke.
