 The aim of this study was to investigate the seropositivity of hydatidosis in a group of cattle with and without eosinophilia. Of the 597 cattle, 79 (13.2%) were found to have eosinophilia with absolute eosinophilic counts. Out of 79 cattle, 62 (78.4%) and 48 (60.7%) were found to be positive for hydatidosis by ELISA and IFAT, respectively. Out of 79 cattle without eosinophilia, 38 (48.1%) were found to be seropositive by ELISA and 34 (43.1%) by IFAT. Our data indicated that seropositivity of hydatidosis in cattle with eosinophilia was higher than the group without eosinophilia and it will be useful to investigate livestock with eosinophilia for hydatidosis.
