The present results confirm that the cystic echinococcosis is a common infection in Peru; it seems that transmission also occurs in other ;eru cities than Lima and Chincha. The G1 genotype is considered the most widespread and infectious form of E. Therefore, due to epidemiological implications and for the design of control strategies, it is essential that circulating E. Towards a taxonomic revision of the hidatidksis Echinococcus.

The morphology and measure of the hooks obtained from the liquid contained in the cysts are from Echinococcus vogeli. Preu areas are known as breeding zones for dairy cattle and sheep intermediate hosts. In humans, the disease is considered a critical public health problem.
