Bebezov, Bakhadyr; Mamashev, Nurlan; Umetaliev, Tilek; Ziadinov, Iskender; Craig, Philip S; Joekel, Deborah E; Deplazes, Peter; Grimm, Felix; Torgerson, Paul R (2018). Intense focus of Alveolar Echinococcosis, South Kyrgyzstan. Emerging Infectious Diseases, 24(6):1119-1122.

Abstract

Human alveolar echinococcosis (AE) is a highly pathogenic zoonotic parasitic disease caused by Echinococcus multilocularis. An ultrasound study in southern Kyrgyzstan during 2012 revealed a prevalence of 4.2% probable or confirmed AE and an additional 2.2% possible AE, representing an emerging situation. The risk for probable or confirmed AE was significantly higher in dog owners.
