The article describes the geography, way of life, manners and customs, health education, and other characteristics of the population in the “Sierra” of Peru. We report a human case of polycystic hidatidosis due to Echinococcus vogeli from (Department of Loreto) village located in the central jungle of Peru. To determine the genotypes present in endemic areas of Peru, samples were .. Proyecto de control de hidatidosis en el Perú por vigilancia epidemiológica.
