Echinococcosis, cystic
Prevention and Control
  • Personal hygiene must be emphasised to prevent accidental ingestion of the cestode eggs from soil contaminated with dog faeces or by direct transmission
  • All infected viscera from slaughtered animals must be disposed of so that dogs do not have access to this material
  • Periodic anti-helminthic treatment of dogs in endemic areas
