          Abstract

          The present study was carried out between August 1999 and April 2000 with the objective of determining the prevalence of Taenia solium taeniasis in two village communities of Bafou and Bamendou in the Menoua division (West Cameroon). Four (0.13%) out of 3,109 faecal samples were positive for Taenia spp. eggs using the flotation technique. Three of the four worms expelled were T. solium whereas the other one was T. saginata. Two cases of cysticercosis were diagnosed in one of the families with a T. solium carrier. Furthermore, coprological and serological investigations for T. solium taeniasis and cysticercosis were carried out among butchers and/or tongue inspectors (n = 137) of the city of Dschang. The results were compared with those of a control group (n = 198). Taenia spp. eggs were not detected by microscopic examination. The prevalence of cysticercosis in the two groups was relatively similar (3.6 and 4.5% respectively).
