Abstract

BLACK, J et al. Human fascioliasis in South Africa. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2013, vol.103, n.9, pp.658-659. ISSN 2078-5135.

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.
