          Abstract

          In the course of an epidemiological survey concerning the alveolar echinococcosis and its causative agent, Echinococcus multilocularis, the autopsies of 150 wild red foxes captured in the department of the Haute-Savoie between December 1983 and August 1988 disclosed 139 cases of intestinal helminthiasis with cestodes and nematodes; no trematode was found. Multiple infections were frequent. The cestoda recorded consist of the following species: Taenia crassiceps: 44 cases (29%); Echinococcus multilocularis: 34 cases (23%); Taenia polyacantha: 22 cases (14%); Mesocestoides litteratus: 7 cases (4.6%); Amoebotaenia paradoxa: 1 case (0.6%). The Nematoda concerned are: Uncinaria stenocephala: 79 cases (52%); Toxocara canis: 67 cases (44%); Toxascaris leonina: 16 cases (10%); Trichuris vulpis: 12 cases (8%); Pterygodermatites affinis: 8 cases (5%); Trichostrongyloidea sp.: 5 cases (3%). The animals were not examined for Trichinella spiralis. The results are compared with those observed anteriorly in the province of Auvergne (France).
