background
Fasciolosis (hepatic distomatosis) is a zoonosis due to the presence in the organism of trematode worms, commonly known as liver flukes. The species of the Fasciola genus have different life cycles involving different hosts and have a various geographical distribution. Among them, Fasciola hepatica, main agent of fasciolosis is also the most commonly found species, and present worldwide. The adult fluke lives in biliary canals of a wide proportion of mammalians, such as cattle and sheep, while humans are accidental hosts. Adults release a large number of eggs through hosts feces. They hatch in water, releasing a ciliated embryo (myracidium) that penetrates into a snail of the Lymnaea genus. The parasite multiplies into the snail before leaving it as a mobile larva (cercariae) which encysts on water plants (metacercariae). Final host gets infected by ingestion of contaminated plants (water cress, dandelion, chicory…). For the other species of flukes, contamination can occur by ingestion of undercooked fresh water fish or shellfish
