Estimation of economic impacts due to hydatidosis among livestok  in Kermanshah Province, western Iran

AbstractInformation about inspection of slaughtered animals is a basic approach to review the epidemiological pattern of infectious diseases. Therefore, this study was aimed to determine the prevalence of hydatidosis as well as estimate of relevant economic losses in livestock slaughtered in Kermanshah Province, western Iran, throughout the years 2010 –2015. A total of 539,861 livestock examined; 12,413 (2.29%) were infected with hydatidosis. Overall, 4713 (3.21%) of cattle, 6720 (1.97%) of sheep, and 980 (1.86%) of goats were found to be infected with hydatidosis. The total economic loss was USD 457,582. The direct economic loss in cattle was USD 134,164, in sheep USD 53,908, and in goats USD 7407. Furthermore, the indirect economic loss in cattle, sheep, and goats was USD 220,211, USD 41,197, and USD 695, respectively. Targeted investigations on the prevalence of this disease, especially in endemic areas, as well as continuous and regul ar actions such as the training of those who deal with livestock, the sanitary condemnation of infected organs, the reduction of stray dog population, and the grazing of livestock on safe pasture can provide a clear horizon for an appropriate solution to minimize the infected cases and prevent huge economic losses due to hydatidosis.

Conclusion: The serological methods used in the study were found to be important in the early diagnosis of alveolar echinococcosis in the endemic areas, since it could be used in sero-epidemiological studies. PMID: 31591872 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Shin DH, Jo HC, Kim JH, Jun KI, Park WB, Kim NJ, Choi MH, Kang CK, Oh MD Abstract A complicated case of echinococcosis with multiple organ involvement is reported in a 53-year-old businessman who frequently traveled overseas, including China, Russia, and Kazakhstan from 2001 to 2007. The patient was first diagnosed with a large liver cyst during a screening abdomen ultrasonography in 2011, but he did not follow up on the lesion afterwards. Six years later, dizziness, dysarthria, and cough developed, and cystic lesions were found in the brain, liver and lungs. The clinical course was complicated when the pa...

Conclusions/SignificanceThose observations suggest that over decades socio-ecological changes resulted in a cascade of factors that exacerbated and then interrupted parasite emergence, with probable elimination of peri-domestic transmission ofE.multilocularis in this area, despite the relative proximity of large active transmission foci on the eastern Tibetan Plateau. This study case exemplifies how anthropogenic land use and behavioural changes can modify emergence events and the transmission of endemic zoonotic parasite infections, and subsequently the importance of considering processes over the long-term in a systems a...

ConclusionAcute limb ischemia should be considered as an extremely a rare cause of rupture cardiac hydatid in an endemic area of echinococcosis also, this case confirms the need for the evaluation of the patient well after ruptured cardiac hydatid for other sites of emboli like brain hydrated as in our patient.

Abstract Hydatidosis is an important zoonotic parasite disease in several herbivorous mammals. Human cystic echinococcosis (CE) caused by infection with larval stage of Echinococcus granulosus has been frequently reported from different organs. Here, we report the first case of a urinary echinococcosis in Iran with a pain in the lower left abdominal quadrant and severe frequent urination (pollakiuria). We detected a cyst 120 × 15 mm dimensions with heterogeneous mass contain fluid in the back of the urinary bladder neck between the umbilical region and external urethral sphincter. The patient was candidate f...

ledias J, Belhassen-García M Abstract Cystic echinococcosis (CE) is a chronic, complex, and overlooked zoonotic disease caused by Echinococcus granulosus. In humans, it may result in a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations depending on the type of complications, ranging from asymptomatic infection to fatal disease. The primary complications and risk factors associated with CE are not well defined. We performed a retrospective, observational study of inpatients diagnosed with CE from January 1998 to December 2017 in the public health-care system of western Spain. Five hundred and six cases were analyzed. ...

Predisposing factors for recurrence of hydatid cysts remained to be identified. Toll-like receptor (TLR) plays a pivotal role in bridging between acquired and innate immunity in cystic echinococcosis (CE) infection. 117 CE patients including 66 ...

Authors: Jiang T, Guo Q, Ran B, Zhang R, Aji T, Shao Y Abstract Hydatid disease, also known as echinococcal disease, is a zoonotic disease caused by Echinococcus infection. Hydatid cysts of the thyroid are rare. The present case study reports on a patient with hydatid cyst in the thyroid with tracheal fistula. A 54-year-old male patient without any history of exposure to farm animals was hospitalized due to fever and productive cough with occasional hydatid daughter cyst. The patient was diagnosed with a hydatid cyst of the thyroid gland with tracheal fistula by relevant examination. An operation was performed to r...

ConclusionHydatid disease should be thought when patients present with mass lesion in any part of the body especially in endemic areas. The most important step in the diagnosis is to exclude the presence of other cysts in other parts of the body.
