A general investigation of digenean parasites was carried out from four fish species; Fahka puffer fish (Tetraodon lineatus), Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus), Sharp tooth catfish (Clarias gariepinus) and Bayad (Bagrus bajad) from different localities of the River Nile in Qena and Aswan governorates, Egypt during October 2015 to August 2016. Fo...

This study examined Red Sea fishes at Hurghada and Safaga, Egypt, for the presence of trematodes of the superfamily Hemiuridae Looss, 1899. Merlucciotrema praeclarum Manter, 1934 was detected from Caesio lunaris (Perciformes: Caesionidae) and Cyatholecithochirium sp. from Epinephelus tauvina (Perciformes: Serranidae). Standard methods for collectin...

Nematodes of the genus Hysterothylacium (Nematoda: Raphidascarididae) infect marine fishes either with larval and adult stages. Humans can be accidentally infected upon consumption of infected seafood. Inspire of their importance, little is known about their occurrence and systematics in Egypt. During the present study, different Red Sea fishes at...

Study of the prevalence and identification of the juveniles of Anisaxis spp. in the marine fishes is of great value for biologists and medical parasitologists. In this study, Red Sea fishes at Hurghada, Egypt were examined for adult and larval helminthes. Among others, Anisakis simplex third stage larvae; type I & type II were identified from three...

Monogenea is a class constituting the ectoparasitic flukes mainly on skin and gills of fish, with greater diversity of species worldwide. In the present study, four different species of monogenean parasites were recorded; they were isolated from gills of four freshwater fish species captured from locations along the River Nile, Qena governorate, Eg...

The highest prevalence of schistosomiasis is usually found in school-age children and youth, where it represents the main cause of iron deficiency anemia. Study was done on 859 patients; their age from 5-18 years old at Nag Hammady at the period from July 2013 to July 2014 all of them had subjective history of contact or swimming in water canals. U...

blood and tissues of naturally infecting white-spotted gecko Tarentola annularis collected from Qena, Egypt. Different parasite’s forms were observed infecting the erythrocytes. The gamonts enclosed within parasitophorous vacuole and seems to have no clear effect on the host cell especially in case of immature parasite forms. But in the presence of...

The Egyptian skinks Mabuya quinquetaeniata were investigated for haemogregarines. The intracellular parasites were found in three developmental forms; trophozoite measured 4 µm; the intermediate form (a newly formed gamont) measured 14 µm and the elongated crescent-shaped one that measured 18 µm and considered as a mature gamont. Meronts were found...

Two different localities were selected for the present investigation. Generally, out of 200 Mugil cephalus individuals examined, 63 (31.5%) were found to be infected. Out of 119 M. cephalus, 44 (36.9%) collected from Lake Qarun at Fayoum in Egypt were found infected. On the other hand, out of 81 M. cephalus, 19 (23.45%) collected from Missurata fis...

Both light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy were used in the description. There were variable measurements of eggs from the same fluke and there was no relationship between the size of the fluke and size of eggs. Light microscopy revealed that the operculum has different shapes in Fasciola gigantica and F. hepatica. Under normal laborato...

Light Microscopy (LM) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) were used to study the egg and miracidium of Fasciola gigantica and redia, cercaria and metacercaria from field infected Lymnaea (cailliaudi) natalensis snails, to analyze the differences between eggs and intra-molluscan stages of F. hepatica and F. gigantica in a zone of sympatry. The eg...

Experimental infection trails of Lymnaea (cailliaudi) natalensis snails with miracidia of Fasciola hepatica revealed neither cercariae nor larval stages shed. Infection of white mice with metacercariae from field-collected snails proved to be negative for Fasciola eggs and immature juveniles or adults after 84 days post infection. The infection of...

The present study focuses on and describes the developmental stages of a haemogregarine species in the blood and tissues of the gecko Ptyodactylus hasselquistii. The blood stages were differentiated into two forms: a short gamont measuring 11.87 x 6.42 microm and a banana-shaped mature gamont measuring 14.13 x 10.03 microm in length and width, resp...
