Parasitic zoonoses or parasitic infections transmitted from animals to humans are likely to become increasingly important in the spectrum of emergent and re-emergent diseases for both developed and developing countries. Tapeworm zoonoses form an important group of such pathogens and are being recognized more and more as a public health problem in Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and the USA.
