ZAYAS MARTINEZ, Iris Gladys; BOUZA LOPEZ, Dayamí; GARCIA GONZALEZ, Gloria  y  DOMENECH CANETE, Ingrid. irst family report of Inermicapsifer magadascariensis (cubensis). AMC [online]. 2009, vol.13, n.2. ISSN 1025-0255.

It is informed the presence of intestinal parasitism for the first time by Inermicapsifer madagascariensis in a family from Santa Cruz del Sur municipality of Camagüey province. The outbreak was detected starting from investigations carried out to a smaller child of 18 months remitted to the parasitology consultation to present inappetence, loss of weight, watery and semiclammy diarrheas, anorexy and abdominal pain. The mentioned symptoms also showed up in the rest of the family (mother and grandfather). The diagnosis was confirmed when sending the samples of feces to the provincial laboratory of parasitology, where the presence of the proglottids of the parasite was verified in all the patients. Affected people received treatment with prazicuantel to established dose, after indicating them other complementaries. The presence of dogs and rodents were proven through the epidemic survey. Similar outbreaks have not been reported in our country according to the reviewed literature.
