Morphometric identification of Trichuris suis eggs isolated from different biological substrates

   Trichuriasis of pigs is common nematodosic invasion in different climatic zones around the world. The morphobiological identification of this pathogen by morphometric parameters of helminth eggs remains understudied issue. The object of this study was to examine and compare the average sizes of structural parts of Trichuris suis eggs isolated from the gonads of female worms and faeces of sick animals. The analysis showed that the average sizes of eggs isolated from gonads of female trichurises are: length – 65.08±1.54 μm, width – 30.76±1.15 μm, the length of caps – 7.78±1.13 μm, its width – 10.69±1.19 μm; egg shell thickness – 3.26±0.82 μm. In eggs, isolated from the faeces of sick pigs there were registered increasing of their length (р<0.01), width and caps (р<0.05) but shells were thinned.

Keywords: trichuriasis, pigs, eggs of helminth, morphometry.
