Abstract

熊本県内で保護されたハヤブサ2羽の筋肉から被嚢した線虫が検出され,形態学的観察から有棘顎口虫 <I> Gnathostoma spinigerum </I>および日本顎口虫 <I> G. nipponicum </I>の第3期後期幼虫と考えられた。ハヤブサから顎口虫幼虫が発見されたのは今回が初めてとみられ,幼虫に感染した鳥類を捕食して感染したものと考えられた。

Encysted nematode larvae were found from muscle of two Peregrine Falcons rescued in Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan. They were identified morphologically as the advanced third-stage larvae of <I>Gnathostoma spinigerum </I>and<I> G. nipponicum</I>. This is the first case of <I>Gnathostoma </I>infection in Peregrine Falcons. The falcons were considered to acquire the infection by ingestion of other infected birds.
