Cystic Echinococcosis (CE) is a zoonotic infection caused by larval (metacestode) stages of cestodes belonging to the genus Echinococcus and the family Taeniidae. The aim of current study was to determine the availability and organ placement of hydatid cysts in some ruminants of Pakistan and to study of rostellar hooks morphology of protoscoleces of E. granulosus. A total of 2803 animals comprising 925 sheep, 939 goats and 939 cattle (n=) from both sexes were examined to find out the prevalence… Expand

TLDR
In Ethiopia, to break the life cycle of echinococcosis/hydatidosis, public education on habit of feeding condemned organs to dogs should be undertaken and the prevalence was high in sheep compared to goats although the difference was not statistically significant. Expand

TLDR
Molecular analysis of the ITS1 region of rDNA derived from human, sheep and camel isolates were in agreement with the morphological findings and based on the PCR-RFLP method, the sheep and human isolates appeared to pertain to the same genotype and the camel isolate were appeared toPertain to a different genotype.
