Abstract: Compared to recent scientific achievements there has been a lag in control of parasitic diseases in Hungary. This is partly due to the relatively poor variety of drugs and frequent delay in putting up-to-date medicaments on the market. Further difficulties are related to organization. Laboratories being built at county veterinary stations throughout the country as well as the employment of a veterinary parasitologist in each county is expected to be a landmark in this direction. Moreover, a preventive approach in activities against parasite-borne diseases should be adopted by all veterinary surgeons. Control of some of the most important parasitic infections (fasciolosis, ox warbles, ascaridosis of pigs and ascaridiosis of poultry, hydatid disease, gastrointestinal nematodoses of sheep) will be decreed and/or guiding principles for more successful control measures will be propounded by the government in the near future.
