Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In Zhang County of Gansu Province, 13 human cases of alveolar hydatid disease were reported up to 1990. However, the causative organism has not yet been described in animal hosts. In July 1990, postmortem examinations were made on 59 dogs (Canis familiaris) from the Caotan region of Zhang County. Of them, 6 were found to be infected with the adult worms of Echinococcus multilocularis. The morphological characteristics of the adult were compared in detail with those reported from different parts of China. Our adult specimens were closely resembling those of E. multilocularis reported from Ningxia. The role of domestic dogs in the epidemiology of alveolar echinococcosis in Zhang County was discussed.
