the house mouse: a potential intermediate host for echinococcus multilocularis in france.an adult house mouse infected with an alveolar hydatid of echinococcus multilocularis was trapped in the cellar of an inhabited house in a small village in auvergne (france) where 3 human cases of alveolar hydatid disease had been diagnosed. the rodent harboured a young hepatic larval cyst. this indicated the presence of infective eggs of the parasite inside the house and outbuildings, an important observation concerning the circulation of the parasite in a domestic environment.19902091354
[epidemiology of alveolar echinococcosis in france. 1. intestinal helminths in the red fox (vulpes vulpes l.) from haute-savoie].in the course of an epidemiological survey concerning the alveolar echinococcosis and its causative agent, echinococcus multilocularis, the autopsies of 150 wild red foxes captured in the department of the haute-savoie between december 1983 and august 1988 disclosed 139 cases of intestinal helminthiasis with cestodes and nematodes; no trematode was found. multiple infections were frequent. the cestoda recorded consist of the following species: taenia crassiceps: 44 cases (29%); echinococcus mult ...19902344133
epidemiology of alveolar echinococcosis in southern cantal, auvergne region, france.alveolar echinococcosis (ae) is a helminth zoonosis which is encountered only in the northern hemisphere. in central france, the auvergne region represents the most western and southern extension of this helminthiasis. in 1999, a human case of ae was diagnosed in the southern part of the cantal department, where ae was supposed absent, and an epidemiological survey was subsequently carried out. the transmission of the zoonosis in the sylvatic and peridomestic definitive hosts was studied, as wel ...200415469627
genetic diversity of echinococcus multilocularis on a local scale.echinococcusmultilocularis is the causative agent of human alveolar echinococcosis (ae), and it is one of the most lethal zoonotic infections in the northern hemisphere. in france, the eastern and central regions are endemic areas; franche-comté, lorraine and auvergne are particularly contaminated. recently, several human cases were recorded in the french ardennes area, a region adjacent to the western border of the e. multilocularis range in france. a previous study in this focus described a pr ...200818406214
[helminths of the common fox (vulpes vulpes l.) from the massif central (france) (author's transl)].sixty nine wild foxes originating from auvergne for the period january 1977 to january 1978 have shown intestinal parasites in the proportion of 76,8 per cent. 59,4 per cent are invaded with cestodes; 72,4 per cent with nematodes and none with trematodes. the list of the identified species is following: 1. cestodes. a) adults and fertile forms of: mesocestoides litteratus in 27,5 per cent of the hosts; taenia crassiceps in 15,9 p.c.; t. polyacantha in 27,5 p.c.; echinococcus multilocularis in 7, ...19807458165
[detection of the larva of taenia multilocularis in 2 voles (microtus arvalis and clethrionomys glareolus) in a focus of alveolar echinococcosis in the massif central (france)].small wild rodents were collected and examined during 1983-1984 to investigate parasite-host relationships of echinococcus multilocularis in one habitat suitable for red foxes of auvergne (france). the natural infestation of the liver of two different voles, microtus arvalis and clethrionomys glareolus, by the larval stage of the cestode is recorded for the first time. in the both cases, the larvae were fully developed and numerous protoscolices were present with some calcareous corpuscules; the ...19846440675
[the auvergnan focus of alveolar echinococcosis. research on the intermediate host, description of the lesions].echinococcus multilocularis larvae occurred in 23 (2.44%) of the 943 adult vole rats (arvicola terrestris scherman shaw, mammal microtidae) collected in the mountanous center of france (massif central, departments of puy-de-dôme and cantal, province of auvergne) and obtained from august 1981 to aug. 1982 in seven different localities. according to this localities, the average percentage of parasitized voles changes from zero to 4.65%; according to the month of the year, these percentages change ...19836362536
[hepatic larvae of cestode parasites of the vole rat arvicola terrestris in auvergne (france)].the autopsy of 943 vole rats arvicola terrestris scherman shaw (mammal microtidae) from auvergne (departments of puy-de-dôme and cantal) obtained for the year 1981 and 1982 shows evidence of four different species of hepatic cestode larvae. cysticercus fasciolaris occurred in 37 (3.92%), echinococcus multilocularis in 23 (2.44%), c. tenuicollis in 11 (1.16%) and c. laticollis in 10 (1.06%). c. longicollis occurred in one (0.10%) as parasite of the abdominal cavity. there is usually just one larv ...19836362535
