dc.description.abstract Cystic-echinococcosis(CE) caused by larval stage of Echinococosus species is a serious parasitic infection, and in accident cases human beings may get infected by uptake of egg and this may lead to a very serious disease in human beings especially respiratory involvement. CE especially that caused by E. granulosus is con sidered as major zoonoses affecting ruminant animals and result in p aramount economic loss in meat production. The current retrospective survey was performed to determine the prevalen ce, distribution and intensity of Echinococcus gran ulosus in human of South Darfur State, one of endemic areas for C E in Sudan. Results obtained from surgical data records indicated presence of only one case of liver hydatidosis at Adde in hospital. While diagnostic CT data records reve aled the overall prevalen ce rate of 1.22% of CE. The high infection ra te was recorded for liver infection. The rate of infect ion was significantly higher in female than in male and rural areas h ad higher prevalence rate than the urban ones. T he study documented the prevalence of human hydatidosis in the st udy area for the first time. en_US
