Being a synanthropic cosmopolitan fly of tropical origin, Clogmia albipunctata is an aquatic species that is commonly found in moisture-rich places such as inside a house, sewage treatment plants, and hospitals. C. albipunctata can cause urogenital, intestinal, and even nasopharyngeal accidental myiasis under non-hygienic conditions or if a person consumes substandard food. Its larvae enter the human body via bodily cavities such as rectum, genitalia, or urinary canal, thereby leading to the development of infestation...

Alveolar echinococcosis is an infectious disease caused by Echinococcus multilocularis and it is frequently diagnosed as a space-occupying lesion in the liver. The growth pattern may be similar to that of a malignant tumour with extensive liver infiltration, spreading into neighbouring organs and forming metastasis-like masses in distant organs. Thus, it is one of the differential diagnoses of liver cancer. We report a case that presented as a klatskin tumour clinically and radiologically, but was revealed by pathologic and serologic work-up...

Parasitic bronchopneumonia plays an important role, especially in the respiratory diseases of cats. Troglostrongylus species have been reported as lung parasites of wild cats; however, in recent years, they have also been found in domestic cats, especially from the Mediterranean and Balkan countries. In this report, Troglostrongylus brevior was found during the examination of lung samples of a tabby cat who was euthanized at the age of 2 years. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of Troglostrongylus brevior in Turkey...

Vector-borne zoonotic diseases (VBZDs) are a major problem for public health and animal welfare all over the world. In recent years, there has been an alarming increase in VBZDs, mainly caused by new or re-emerging arboviruses, bacteria and parasites. The World Health Organization enumerated 10 threats to global health for 2019, notably emphasizing climate change and emerging pathogens as growing priorities. It is important to review potential threats and develop new control programs for rising threats against human health and safety...

Objective: Scabies is diagnosed based on the presence of burrows on the skin, Sarcoptes scabiei adult, egg, or scybala in skin scrapings. The laboratory diagnosis of scabies poses various challenges. We aimed to compare the analytical performance of skin scraping and standard superficial skin biopsy (SSSB) and to investigate the correlation with false negative results in the laboratory diagnosis of scabies. Methods: Skin scraping and SSSB were applied from July 1 to December 31, 2018 on 42 patients whose burrows were marked using dermatoscopy, as obtained from the laboratory information system...

Objective: In Turkey, leishmaniasis occurs in two clinical forms: cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) and visceral leishmaniasis (VL). CL has been reported mainly from south-eastern Anatolia and the eastern part of the Mediterranean region, whereas VL is sporadic in almost all geographical regions of Turkey. Both clinical forms of the disease have been recorded in Kayseri province for decades, but no study has been conducted on the sand fly fauna in this area. Therefore, we determine the species composition and population dynamics of sand flies prevalent in Kayseri province and identify possible vector species...

Objective: To determine the results of radiological and serological screenings in individuals who shared the same living space as patients with hydatid cyst in a State Hospital of Afghanistan. Methods: Patients presenting with hydatid cyst to a public hospital in Afghanistan were included in this study. Full sampling method was used. Also, the relatives of the patients were called to the hospital and investigated for the presence of hydatid cyst antibodies through direct chest X-ray, upper abdominal ultrasonography and ELISA...

Objective: Parasitic diseases have created numerous health and economic problems in developing and developed countries. One of the most prevalent ways of transmitting diseases is by consuming raw vegetables that are contaminated with parasites. With respect to the importance of healthy vegetable consumption, an awareness of vegetable status helps prevent infection. Therefore, the present study was conducted to determine the level of parasitic contamination of vegetables consumed in Tehran...

Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the intestinal parasite distributions in patients who applied to the Parasitology Laboratory of Istanbul University-Cerrahpaşa, Cerrahpaşa Medical Faculty, by evaluating the parasites retrospectively. Methods: Normal saline and stool lugol were applied for direct examination of stool samples that were sent for parasite examination; cellophane band samples were evaluated microscopically. The samples suspected to have protozoa were evaluated using modified acid fast and trichrome staining methods...

Objective: This study was conducted to determine the prevalence of distomatosis in cattle in the Ağrı province in Turkey. Methods: The livers and bile ducts of 200 slaughtered cattle were examined macroscopically, and the gall bladders were examined by sedimentation. The presence of Fasciola hepatica eggs and antigens in 188 cattle were investigated using sedimentation and coproantigen ELISA, respectively. Egg counts per gram of faeces (EPG) was determined using the modified McMaster sedimentation method...

Objective: In present times, malaria remains an infectious disease with a high mortality rate in some regions of the world. It is predicted to preserve its importance as a disease in the future because of the traveling human populations from malaria-endemic African countries into the regions where malaria has been eradicated. The objective of this study is to evaluate the increasing imported malaria cases in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. Methods: In this study, we investigated 13 patients who were diagnosed with malaria between 2016 and 2019...

This case report was prepared to give information about Linognathus setosus (von Olfers, 1816) detected on a 2-year-old male Rottweiler breed dog which was brought to a private veterinary clinic due to restlessness and itching. Lice were found especially on the head, neck and back regions of the dog in the examination for ectoparasites. Four female, 2 male and 9 nymph lice were collected from dog. The collected lice were preserved in eppendorf tubes containing 70% ethanol (C2 H5 OH) and were sent to the Department of Parasitology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Selçuk University for species identification...

The aim of this study was to report on bat flies collected from a fruit bat ( Rousettus aegyptiacus Geoffroy) which was found on the ground for an unknown reason, and was brought to a private veterinary clinic in Antalya. Bat flies on the bat that were brought to the clinic were sampled during examination of the bat. Fly samples were stored in glass tubes containing 70% alcohol and then refrigerated (+4 °C). Species identification was made by using morphological characters under a stereo microscope. A total of 4 adult female bat flies were collected...

The patient was a 83-year- old male who worked as a farmer. He had complaints of weight loss, abdominal pain and joint pains for almost 5 months. Twenty days ago, the patient was checked at another hospital for complaints of occasional coughing and bloody sputum. He was treated with a diagnosis of pneumonia. His respiratory complaints were reduced, but there was no relief of his ongoing abdominal pain. Gastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy were performed to examine for possible etiologies of continuous abdominal pain...

Neosporosis is an infectious disease which is caused by a protozoan called Neospora caninum and characterized by endemic and epidemic abortions in adult cattle and congenital encephalomyelitis in calves. Our case was a female calf from the Holstein breed which was born in a farm with abortion and infertility problems and was unable to stand up after birth.. It was stated that it was the third pregnancy of the mother cow and that the previous pregnancy was aborted in the fifth month. In clinical examination, sucking reflex of the calf was present and there was spastic paralysis starting from pelvic muscle in rear limbs...

MicroRNAs (miRNAs), as epigenetic regulators, are small non-coding RNAs regulating gene expression in eukaryotes at the post-transcriptional level to control biological functions. MicroRNAs play a role in development, physiology, infection, immunity and the complex life cycles of parasites. Also, parasite infection can alter host miRNA expression that might result in either parasite clearance or infection. Over the past 20 years, thousands of miRNAs have been identified in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans and other parasites...
