      López Millán, Cyntia; Olea, María Sofía; Dantur Juri, María Julia (Comité editorial Parasitology Research, 2015-10-09)
      ARTÍCULO PUBLICADO EN REVISTA EXTERNA. Myiasis is caused by dipterous larvae from the Calliphoridae, Sarcophagidae, Muscidae, Cuterebridae, and Syrphidae families. In this work, Cochliomyia hominivorax, Chrysomya megacephala, and Ornidia robusta were identified causing vulva, ear, and leg myiasis in pigs in Tucuman province, northwestern Argentina. The report of the presence of C. hominivorax and C. megacephala is very important due to their role as myiasis-causing and disease vectors. The occurrence of Ornidia robusta is remarkable, since it constitutes the first record of myiasis in general ...
    • Vector Borne Diseases in Mid Western Argentina, First Report of Setaria Equina [Nematoda: Onchocercidae] in A Horse [Equus caballus] 

      Mera y Sierra, Roberto; Iranzo, José; Neira, Gisela (Comité editorial Austin Journal of Vector Borne Diseases, 2017-12-05)
      ARTÍCULO PUBLICADO EN REVISTA EXTERNA. Vector borne diseases are spreading worldwide. Companion animals can be useful as sentinels for disease surveillance. Setaria spp. are filarial nematodes transmitted by Aedes spp. and Culex spp. Setaria equina has been reported in Asia, Africa and North America. This zoonotic nematode is frequently asymptomatic in horses, except during its erratic migrations. Filarial worms have a tropism for ocular and nervous tissues, having important implications in veterinary and public health. In mid west Argentina, Dirofilaria immitis has already been described ...
