Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Only a few food-borne parasitic zoonoses have been reported in Indonesia. The most frequently observed food-borne parasitic diseases are: toxoplasmosis, taeniasis and cysticercosis. Little data are available on other parasitic zoonoses in Indonesia. Taeniasis has been reported in nine provinces. Toxoplasmosis in humans, with prevalence rates ranging from 1 to 60%, has been reported in 12 provinces; in animals, toxoplasmosis is known to occur throughout the country, with serologically positive cases in as many as 75% of animals examined. However, it is expected that other parasitic zoonoses, such as anisakiasis, fasciolopsiasis and echinostomiasis, will emerge as the popularity of exotic foods being served in Korean and Japanese restaurants spreads throughout Indonesian cities. This paper reviews the current status of parasitic zoonoses in Indonesia.
