The cyclophyllidean cestodes of the genus Mesocestoides are parasites infecting a variety of carnivorous vertebrates. The complete life cycle of these tapeworms is not clear yet, but some reptiles, amphibians, birds and micro-mammals have been indicated as intermediate hosts. Although Mesocestoides spp. are considered endemic in Europe, infections by the metacestode form, the tetrathyridium, are reported less commonly than are infections by adult worms. In the present study, a peritoneal… Expand
