Trichinellosis is an endemic disease in Argentina. During the last decade (1990 to 1999) 5,217 human cases were notified to the National System of Epidemiological Surveillance from 18 provinces of 23 that integrate the country. However 91 % of the cases notified were registered in only three provinces (Buenos Aires, Cordoba and Santa Fe) with a population of more than 50 % of the inhabitants of Argentina. This data suggest the magnitude of trichinellosis as a public health problem, focalized in the central area of the country.
Key words: zoonosis / trichinellosis / epidemiology
