Trichinellosis wos recognized almost one century ago as a health and animal husbandry problem in Serbia. In the last 10 years, trichinellosis has been expanding from three endemic regions (Srem, Macva and Negotinska Krajina) to neighbouring regions. The infection rate detected by veterinary inspection in 1999 year was 0.17 % in slaughtered swines. Simultaneously, the number of infected humans increased three-five times in comparison with the period 1980-1990. For instance, 555 individuals were registered in 1999 as infected after the consummation of non-inspected pork from domestic swine or wild boar. Prevalence of trichinellosis in wild animals was examined more than a 20 years ago. The trichinellosis in horses has not been detected in the country, but infected horses imported from Serbia were detected in France and Italy.
