Treść
This article aims at the presentation of epizootic situation of echinococcosis in red foxes in Poland. Tapeworm Echinococcus multilocularis is a species whose adult stage usually parasitizes the fox, dog and cat. The larvae occur principally in rodents but can also infect humans. Alveolar echinococcosis is a dangerous zoonosis. Red fox, the typical primary natural host is responsible for spreading the infective eggs in the environment. Therefore, surveys concerning prevalence of this parasite in red fox population are conducted in many countries to conclude about risk for public health. Study, which was carried out in Poland recently, has covered the whole territory of the country. The results confirmed nonhomogeneous distribution of tapeworm carriers. There are provinces in which E. multilocularis infected foxes reached 50%, whilst in other regions there are just few percent of carrier animals. It has been also found that during last decade the prevalence of E. multilocularis in red fox population significantly increased. This dynamic situation points out the requirement of constant monitoring the natural host population.
