Human fascioliasis in South Africa

J Black, N Ntusi, P Stead, B Mayosi, M Mendelson

Abstract


Human fascioliasis has the widest latitudinal, longitudinal and altitudinal distribution of any vector-borne disease, yet only 3 cases have been reported from South Africa, the last in 1964. We report 2 cases from the same  geographic area associated with local consumption of watercress, suggesting an endemic focus.
