Trichostrongylus

 [trik″o-stron´jĭ-lus]
a genus of nematode parasites found in the intestines of humans and other animals; see trichostrongyliasis.

Trichostrongylus

(trik'ō-stron'ji-lŭs),
The hairworm, or bankrupt or black scour worm; an economically important genus (about 30 species) of small slender nematodes (family Trichostrongylidae) that inhabit the small intestine, in some cases the stomach, of a variety of herbivorous animals and gallinaceous birds. They burrow into the mucosa and suck blood; in large numbers they do serious damage, especially to young hosts.
[tricho- + G. strongylos, round]

La coloracion de las mucosas, que es el fundamento del metodo FAMACHA [5], ha sido probado satisfactoriamente en ovinos (Ovis aries) parasitados por Haemonchus contortus, nematodo hematofago causante de anemia, pero no es tan efectivo cuando la parasitosis es causada por otros generos muy prevalentes como Trichostrongylus, por eso se hace necesario probar otras alternativas adaptables por los productores, como la escala de condicion corporal que debe ser evaluada en aquellos sitios donde prevalezcan nematodos no hematofagos [3, 10, 12, 23].
Quanto aos nematoides presentes nas amostras analisadas, observou-se predominancia dos generos Cooperia e Haemonchus (cerca de 90% das larvas encontradas), alem de larvas dos generos Oesophagostomum e Trichostrongylus em menor numero (cerca de 6% e 4%, respectivamente).
