          Abstract

          O objetivo deste trabalho foi determinar a prevalência de Fasciola hepática em ovinos no Estado do Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil, através de laudos de abate e condenação de fígados ovinos. Os dados de condenação de 2000 a 2005 foram obtidos do Servico de Inspeção Federal (SIF) do Ministerio da Agricultura, Pecuaria e Abastecimento (MAPA). No ano de 2000 foi de 14,57% (18.072/124.078); em 2001 foi de 10,14% (11.998/118.332); em 2002 foi de 10,96% (11.372/103.762); em 2003 foi de 9,96% (10.802/108.461); em 2004 foi de 5,42% (6.245/ 114.596) e em 2005 foi de 2,27% (2.750/ 121.172). A prevalência geral de condenação de fígados por F. hepática foi de 8,87% (61.239/ 690.361). Conclui-se que a fasciolose ovina é prevalente no Rio Grande do Sul, acarretando perdas para os produtores, frigoríficos e para o Estado.

          Translated abstract

          The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence of Fasciola hepática among sheep in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, by reviewing slaughter and liver condemnation data obtained from the Federal Inspection Service, afflliated with the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Husbandry and Supply, for years 2000 to 2005. Liver condemnation amounted to 14.57% (18,072/ 124,078) in 2000,10.14% (11,998/118,332) in 2001,10.96% (11,372/103,762) in 2002, 9.96% (10,802/ 108,461) in 2003, 5.42% (6,245/114,596) in 2004, and 2.27% (2,750/121,172) in 2005. The overall prevalence of liver condemnation due to F. hepática corresponded to 8.87% (61.239/690.361). In conclusion, fascioliosis was found to be prevalent among sheep in the state of Rio Grande do Sul and to account for major economic losses to farmers, meat packing plants and to the government.
