Abstract

More than one century (1898-2007) of literature was collected according to a specific form. In this period 170 papers was produced. Even if the number of papers remain very low a trend of growing interest was observed. Among the different parasites the interest was pointed mainly on gastro intestinal ones (31%), followed by Ascaris suum (11%). The half of scientific production is concerning epidemiological angle, the therapeutic approach to the parasitic diseases is also treated (11%) and an interesting 14% has an educational approach consisting in reviews. The geographical distribution only partially reflects the importance of regional pig industry; Lombardy (15%), Emilia- Romagna (13%), Sicily (13%), Tuscany (10%) and Umbria (9%). Is surprising this gap of national scientific production on pig parasite considering the big effort of innovation of swine breeding that transformed in few years the ancient domestic mammal in a technological unit meat producing.
