Abstract: 

Purpose: The present study was conducted to evaluate the frequency of human hydatidosis in Ilam Province using Dot- ELISA techniques.

Materials & Methods: Three thousands sera, collected from different cities of Ilam Province in the west of Iran were examined. The serum dilution of 1:400 was selected as the cut off and the results were confirmed by the ELISA technique.

Results: Results indicated that, totally 37 individuals (1.2%) show positive sera. There were significant differences among various age groups of infected individuals. The most percentage of infection was found to be in the 20-30 age group. Among the sera tested, 0.56%, 1.57%, 10.77% were found to be positive in individuals living in cities, villages and migratory tribes respectively. Twenty two individuals of the infected people (1.47%) were female and 15 individuals (1%) were male. Most infected individuals were found to be in Mehran city (3.11%) and less infected individuals were found to be in Ilam city (0.79%).

Conclusion: Most of the people living in migratory tribes were sheep keepers and were actually involved in animal production, wich can be regarded as a risk  factor for their higher infection rate.
