SAGUA, Hernán; NEIRA, Iván; ARAYA, Jorge  e  GONZALEZ, Jorge. New cases of Diphyllobothrium pacificum (Nybelin, 1931) Margolis, 1956 human infection in North of Chile, probably related with El Niño phenomenon, 1975-2000. Bol. chil. parasitol. [online]. 2001, vol.56, n.1-2, pp.22-25. ISSN 0365-9402.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0365-94022001000100006.

The effect of El Niño/ENSO on terrestrial atmosphere appears to be extremelly clear. However there are outstanding evidences showing its effect on humans and their activities. In fact, prevalence of some parasitic infections have increased during El Niño phenomenon. The reasons for that are the migrations of sylvatic mammals, fishes and birds as well as by environmental contamination. In this report, we show evidence respect of new cases of human infection by Diphyllobothrium pacificum clearly associated with a cyclic manifestation of El Niño in the Chilean Pacific coast during 1975-2000
