  1. Intestinal helminths of public health importance of dogs in Nairobi.

    Article - En anglais

    In a survey of intestinal canine zoonotic helminths in Nairobi, 156 dogs were autopsied.

    Of these, 10% were infected with Echinococcus granulosus, 88% with Ancylostoma caninum, 45% with Dipylidium caninum and 3% with Toxocara canis.

    All the infected dogs with E. granulosus originated from around abottoirs in Dagoretti.

    The risk of infection in man with hydatid disease is considered to be high around Dagoretti and control measures are recommended.
