Fuglei, E; Stien, A; Yoccoz, N G; Ims, R A; Eide, N E; Prestrud, P; Deplazes, P; Oksanen, A (2008). Spatial Distribution of Echinococcus multilocularis, Svalbard, Norway. Emerging Infectious Diseases, 14(1):73-75.

Abstract

In Svalbard, Norway, the only intermediate host for Echinococcus multilocularis, the sibling vole, has restricted spatial distribution. A survey of feces from the main host, the arctic fox, showed that only the area occupied by the intermediate host is associated with increased risk for human infection.
