Abstract: The paper reports on the occurrence and veterinary importance of three nematode species - Chabertia ovina (Fabricius, 1794), Elaphostrongylus cervi Cameron, 1931, Setaria cervi (Rudolphi, 1819) - infesting wild ruminants in Hungary. The hosts and extensity of Chabertia ovina infestation are: Capreolus capreolus 72/84, Dama dama 1/34, Cervus elaphus hippelaphus 2/3, Ovis musimon 1/2. This species is the most important pathogenic parasite of the Hungarian roe deer, regarding its frequency and the chronic colitis caused by it. Elaphostrongylus cervi is the most frequent parasite of red deer (extensity: 52%), but it was found both in the roe deer and fallow deer. Setaria cervi, parasitizing the abdominal cavity of the red deer, was observed in the central nervous system of the red deer on six occasions.
