An epidemiological survey of Echinococcus granulosus was conducted in Tambool area, east Gezira State, Sudan, through meat inspection of slaughtered camels at slaughterhouse and examination of stray dogs faeces. Results of the survey revealed that 70 camels (56.5%) out of 124 examined were found positive for hydatidosis. Twenty-nine out of 62 (46.8%) faecal samples collected directly from the dogs were found positive for E. granulosus using coproantigen ELISA. The high prevalence rate of hydatidosis in camels reported in this study and the high fertility rate of cysts obtained from camels indicate that the camel is an important intermediate host in the tapeworm cycle. Moreover, the high prevalence of E. granulosus in dogs poses a serious hazard to public health.
