TENIIDOZA (taeniidosis, the singular) — the helminthoses caused by tape helminths (cestodes) of family teniid (Taeniidae Ludwig, 1886). Development teniid happens consistently in an organism of two owners belonging to different types. So, final hozyaevakhm (owners puberal teniid) are animals (dogs, foxes, polar foxes, etc.) and people; intermediate owners (owners of larval forms teniid — tsistitserok, tsenur, an echinococcus, alveokokk) — large and small cattle, many wildings, and also people. Two diseases belong to the teniidoza of the person caused by puberal teniida — teniarinkhoz (see), caused bull, or unaided, a tapeworm, and teniosis (see), caused pork, or armed, a tapeworm. Teniidozami, the caused larval forms teniid, are cysticercosis (see), an echinococcosis (see), alveococcosis (see) and coenurosis (see).

One of representatives teniid — a pork tapeworm (Taenia solium) can parasitize at the person as in a puberal form, causing a teniosis, and in larval, causing cysticercosis (see).
