Abstract
A total of 184 serum samples were collected including; 92 from slaughtered cattle (23‚ąē season) in Abo El Matameer Abattoir, and 92 from random human patients attending a private laboratory in Abo El Matameer District, Behera Province to be examined for presence of antibodies against F. hepatica. Cattle samples were examined by Distomiasis Fumouze kitsģ (ready to use indirect haemagglutination test kits) and it was found that the total prevalence was 9.8 %. The seasonal prevalence of F. hepatica infection in examined serum samples of cattle revealed that winter and spring seasons showed the highest seasonal prevalence followed by summer season and males (10.8 %) were higher than females (7.4 %). In addition, the highest prevalence was observed in the age group 2 - 4 years (18.18 %) followed by the age group > 4 years (5.88 %). On the other side, the overall detection rate of F. hepatica infection in human was 13.04 % and the highest seasonal prevalence was noticed in winter season (21.74 %) followed by summer and spring season. The sexual distribution of the positive reactors to F. hepatica in human revealed higher prevalence in females (13.3 %) than in males (12.9 %) and the age group 20 - < 40 years (24.4 %) showed the highest prevalence followed by the age group 40 - < 60 years (22.7 %).
