عنوان مقاله [English]
Schistosoma turkestanicum from schistosoma genus and family Schistosomatidae is an important agent of parasitological infection in sheep. Schistosomiosis as one of the parasitic infections may give rise to serious problems in animal husbandry such as decrease in product of wool, milk, meat and other bestial products that finally lead to an economic detriment. This parasite has been reported from Russia, China, Turkestan (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan), Pakistan, Iraq, Turkey and Iran. Schistosomiosis, as one of the parasitic infections, may give rise to serious economic problems in animal husbandry. According to some reports, this infection is prevalent in North, some central and Southern parts of Iran. In this study, different studies about schistosomiosis infection were reviewed, present situation of infection was described and economic losses of the infection in sheep were argued. In addition, strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and threats related to the situation of schistosomiosis infection control were introduced. Finally strategies and plans for schistosomiosis infection control were described.
