    Human cystic echinococcosis (CE) caused by larval Echinococcus granulosus is a zoonosis of major public health importance throughout the region comprising Arab North Africa and the Middle East.

    Prevalence rates are determined by epizootiological factors related to the size of stray dog population and its worm burden and to the infection rates in the intermediate host reservoir livestock population.

    Socio-economic development and socio-cultural practices are considered important determinants in the continued transmission of the disease.

    The reasons why CE remains a significant public health problem in the region are summarized. 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
