Epidemiology
  • Fascioliasis has a worldwide distribution. It is more common in sheep-raising countries
  • Infection is acquired by eating uncooked aquatic plants with attached metacercariae
  • Many animals (mainly herbivores) are reservoir hosts
  • Mainly single human cases and some epidemics have been reported in the past (largely due to a meal with watercress)
