N2 - Human infection with Oesophagostomum bifurcum is rare globally, but focally endemic and common in Ghana and Togo. Two clinical presentations are identified: uni-nodular disease, which may be recognized as a 'Dapaong Tumour', and multi-nodular disease. Here, we describe the prevalence of O. bifurcum infection and the association with nodular pathology in northern Ghana. The study was performed in October 2002. Out of a well-defined population of approximately 18 000, 928 subjects of all ages were randomly selected for parasitological and ultrasound examination. In stool cultures, 44% had detectable third-stage O. bifurcum larvae present. Females were more often infected than males (P < 0.05).
