Dentro de las enfermedades parasitarias mas comunes de los equinos se destacan los grandes y pequenos Strongylus, Dictiocaulus y Habronema. La mayoria de estos vermes son altamente patogenicos por la hematofagia, la migracion o la respuesta inflamatoria local que causan en los hospedadores que parasitan [23].
Habronemiasis is a disease of equids caused by the nematodes Habronema musca, H.
(5.70%), Oxyuris (O.) equi (5.50%), Strogyloides (St.) westeri (4.90%), Draschia (Dr.) megastoma (4.00%), Gastrodiscus aegyptiacus (3.20%), Habronema spp.
Differential diagnoses in presence of preputial masses, oedema, and discharge, difficulty at urinating, and phimosis are other neoplastic disorders (squamous papilloma, fibrosarcoma, adenocarcinoma, neurofibroma, basal cell carcinoma, and melanoma) [1, 2] and nonneoplastic pathologies such as epithelial hyperplasia, cutaneous infection with Habronema spp., Halicephalobus spp., or Draschia megastoma, and coital exanthema by EHV-3 [2, 19, 20].
The common housefly, Musca domestica Linnaeus, 1758 (Diptera: Muscidae), is the responsible for the transportation of several enteropathogenic microorganisms (e.g., bacterias, virus, protozoo, helminths), and can acts as an intermediate host of several endoparasites, such as helminths Habronema in horses and Raillietina in birds.
Among internal parasites, Oxyuris (O.) equi was recorded in maximum number of equines (n=40/450) followed by Parascaris (P.) equorum (n=36/450), Trypanosoma (T.) evansi (n=35/450), Strongylus (S.) vulgaris (n=12/450), Theileria (T.) equii, and/or Babesia (B.) caballi (n=11/450), Habronema (H.) muscae (n=05/450), Setaria (St) equina (n=04/450), Cyathostomum (C.) catinatum (n=04/450) and Cylicocyclus (Cy.) nassatus (n=02/450).
In equines, large strongyles (red worms or blood worms), small strongyles (small worms), Parascaris equorum (ascarids), Strongyloides westeri, Habronema spp., Draschia spp., Oxyurides (pinworms), Dictyocaluc arnfieldi (lung worms) and Trichostrongylus axei (stomach worms) are responsible for nematodiasis.
The faecal examination of the animal revealed no evidence of habronema infestation.
