Abstract

Gongylonema pulchrum is found in all domesticated mammals and humans, especially sheep and goats (Dunn, 1978). Human infection is presumably due to accidentally ingestion of infected insects or drinking of contaminated water (Eberhard and Busillo,1999). This study was conducted to determine the prevalence of G. pulchrum in sheep Van province in Turkey.
