Abstract

The aim of this article is to describe a case of massive eosinophilic granulomatous hepatitis attributed to hepatic cysticercosis in a sheep in the Riverina, NSW, and to briefly report two additional cases with a similar gross presentation from Wodonga, Victoria, and from Shirwal, Maharastra, India. This condition has been reported once previously in sheep in NSW , but to our knowledge, has not been reported in Victoria, or India. This is a condition that, although rarely encountered, needs to be differentiated from the much more commonly encountered fasciolosis. To our knowledge, the histologic presentation of this condition has only been described in few, if any, reports.
