Abstract

 Introduction: Rodents are potential reservoir of many zoonotic diseases including several helminthic infections. Identification of these parasitic agents in different parts of the country is worth mentioning.Materials & Methods: For the study, during 2010-2011, 108 RATS were collected using live traps in Dezfoul and Andimeshk, north of Khuzestan province of Iran. The RATS were individually dissected and their recovered worms were taxonomically identified.Findings: Amongst 108 captured RATS, 38 RATS were found infected with PARASITIC WORMS. Prevalence rate for all parasitic helminths were estimated 35.1% and mixed infections were seen in 6 RATS. From the 38 infected RATS, six mixed infections were assigned. Identified helminths were as follows: Trichosomoides crassicauda (13.8%), Hymenolepis diminuta (10.1%), Cystycer cus fasciolaris (7.4%), Richtolaria ratti (2.7%), Moniliformis moniliformis (2.7%), Hymenolepis nana (1.8%) and Nippostrongylus brasiliensis (1.8%).Discussion & Conclusion: Our results revealed the presence of five species including, H.nana, H.diminuta, M.moniliformis, Richtolaria ratti and C.fasciolaris as parasitic ZOONOSES that are considered as infectious helminths of human according to scientific literature. The first three parasites are among the likely prevalent helminths, whereas the latest two worms are considered as very rare parasitic infection in humans.
