lung and hearth nematodes in some spanish mammals.thirteen host species belonging to the orders rodentia, insectivora and carnivora from various localities in galicia (nw spain) were examined for heart and lung parasites. the following species were found: parastrongylus dujardini (5.5%) in apodemus sylvaticus, crenosoma striatum in erinaceus europaeus (83%), angiostrongylus vasorum, crenosoma vulpis and eucoleus aerophilus in vulpes vulpes (3, 3.46 and 0.50%, respectively), crenosoma taiga in putorius putorius (100%) and crenosoma sp. in meles ...19911844789
[helminths of hedgehogs, erinaceus europaeus and e. roumanicus from poznań region, poland--coprological study].fecal samples from the hedgehogs, erinaceus europaeus (15 samples) and e. roumanicus (44 samples) collected in the poznań region of poland were examined. endoparasites were isolated using sheather's flotation technique. the prevalence of parasitic infections in all hedgehogs examined was 74.6% (e. europaeus--73.3%; e. roumanicus--75.0%). two species of parasites occurred in both species of hosts: aonchotheca erinacei (60% and 80%) and eucoleus aerophilus (6.7% and 15.9%). brachylaima erinacei wa ...201021449487
helminth parasites of eastern european hedgehog (erinaceus concolor) in northern iran.recently there is a high tendency among exotic pet owners for keeping hedgehogs. this mammal can transfer some significant zoonotic pathogens to human. hence, the present study was conducted for the first time to prepare a list of helminth parasites of hedgehogs (erinaceus concolor) in north of iran.201325516749
histopathologic study of eosinophilic bronchointerstitial pneumonia caused by crenosoma striatum in the hedgehog.crenosoma striatum is a species of parasitic nematodes from the family crenosomatidae responsible for pathologic lung lesions in the hedgehog (erinaceus europaeus). infection with c. striatum can cause weight loss, dry cough, and bronchitis. in the present study, hedgehogs killed by road accidents, or trapped and found dead on farms in different parts of mazandaran province (iran), were transferred to the laboratory. after dissection, parasite samples collected from the lung were placed into 70% ...201425000695
the european hedgehog (erinaceus europaeus), as a reservoir for helminth parasites in iran.from april 2009 to december 2011, 44 dead hedgehogs (erinaceus europaeus) were collected incidentally from areas of urmia, iran. the overall prevalence of helminth infections was 95.0%. specific parasites and their prevalences were: physaloptera clausa (93.0%), crenosoma striatum (61.0%), capillaria aerophila (9.0%), capillarias spp. (4.0%), brachylaemus erinacei (2.0%) and hymenolepis erinacei (16.0%). there were no significant differences in helminth occurrence between hedgehog sexes, either i ...201526261711
zoonoses and other findings in hedgehogs (erinaceus europaeus): a survey of mortality and review of the literature.a survey of mortality in hedgehogs (erinaceus europaeus) was carried out between july 1976 and november 1986. most were from norfolk. of the 74 examined, 35 (47.3 per cent) were road casualties, one of which yielded salmonella typhimurium phage type (pt) 104. of the remaining 39, 13 (33.3 per cent) had salmonellosis due to s enteritidis pt 11. this organism, which appears to be common and widespread in hedgehogs in england was found in 10 separate incidents. the only other zoonosis was ringworm ...19912035215
