Introduction Taenia solium , solitary tapeworm of humans (pork tapeworm), is the causative agent of porcine cysticercosis and human taeniosis and cysticercosis. T . solium infection is considered a parasitic zoonosis with significant public health and economic consequences. It affects mostly less developed countries with particular cultural, socio-economic, and sanitary conditions, as Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America ( 33 ). Nevertheless, a growing number of infections are revealed in Europe and the United States, mainly because of increased human
The number of parasites followed the rapid growing of human population worldwide, not only in developing but also in developed countries. Many of them are diagnosed in children and adolescents. The occurrence of selected intestinal endoparasites in children coming from areas with low hygienic and socioeconomic status was studied. Out of 81 faecal samples examined, 46 (56.8 %) were positive for presence of intestinal parasites. From helminths, Ascaris lumbricoides was found to be the leading parasite (24.7 %), followed by Trichuris trichiura (17.3 %). Tapeworm Taenia spp. eggs were detected in 4.9 % of examined children. From protozoan parasites Cryptosporidium spp. was observed in 36 children (44.4 %) and Giardia intestinalis in 20 children (24.7 %). The occurrence of these epidemiologically low risky parasites in Roma children population suggests low hygienic standard in the Roma settlements.

. Immunosuppressed population, combined with the increase in life expectancy, increased migration of population, and tourism development led to rediscovering parasitic infection even in the developed countries. In the Eastern Europe helminthic soil-borne diseases (especially ascariasis, toxocariasis, and trichuriasis), protozoan disease giardiasis and toxoplasmosis remain still endemic. The occurrence of selected food-borne helminthiases including trichinosis, opisthorchiasis, taeniosis, and echinococcosis is frequent, while brucellosis and leptospirosis have an important place in
