TSESTODBZY (cestodosis, the singular) — the helminthoses caused by cestodes (tape-worms).

The most widespread tses-todozakhm of the person are shadows-arinkhoz (see), a teniosis (see), cysticercosis (see), a diphyllobotriasis (see), a sparganosis (see), a hymenolepiasis (see); quite often meet an echinococcus (see) and an alveococcosis (see), is more rare — dipilidioz (see) and a coenurosis (see).

Activators C. belong to the class Cestoda Gegenbauer, 1859 (a synonym: Cestoidea Rudolphi, 1808; Cestodes Burmeister, 1837; Cysticerci Zeder, 1800). Representatives of two groups of cestodes — tapeworms (teniida, soliter, Cyclophyllidea) and lenteets (Pseudophyllidea) have medical value.

A source of an invasion at intestinal tsestodoza (teniarinkhoz, a teniosis, a hymenolepiasis dwarfish) are sick people and parazito-carriers; at fabric tsestodoza (an echinococcosis, an alveococcosis, a coenurosis) — preying animals (dogs, wolves, foxes, etc.); at diphyllobotriases, a dipilidioza, a hymenolepiasis rat — people and animals. Infection teniarinkhozy and a teniosis occurs at consumption of insufficiently thermally processed meat, and diphyllobotriases — fishes. In infection with hymenolepiases are of great importance insufficient a gigabyte. skills, insanitary maintenance of the dwelling. Infection with fabric or larvaceous tsestodoza (echinococcosis, etc.) occurs at contact with the infected dogs and the vegetation contaminated by eggs of cestodes, the soil. Area of various C. it is not identical and is defined by a condition of sanitary improvement of settlements and sanitary literacy of the population.
