Abstract

We report helminthic infections in the liver and intestine of Rattus norvegicus captured in Chunchon, Korea from April to October, 1994. Out of 43 examined rats, eggs of Capillaria hepatica were found in 11, Hymenolepis diminuta in 14 and Taenia taeniaeformis metacestodes in 28. Those rats can be sources of zoonotic infections in the surveyed area.
