Fascioliasis, a cosmopolitan parasitic disease, has been classified as a neglected tropical disease NTDfor many years. (1) Over the last 20 years, the importance of this disease has been on rise, both in human and veterinary pathology, especially in regions with developed livestock and developing countries. (2) According to WHO estimates, 2.4 million people are infected with fascioliasis, and another 180 million are at risk of this contagious disease. In Montenegro there is no data on number of patients with facioliasis, but the field workers and veterinarians detect the disease occassionaly. Thus, we know that is is present here and should be thought of, especially because of the wide range of clinical manifestations(4), frequent coinfections of numerous infectious agents (5). There is noticable increasingly significant development of resistance to almost successful antiparasitic therapy and vaccine deficiency (6).All of mentioned, complicates and increases the severity of the disease.
