A naturally occurring E. multilocularis infection in an 11-year-old female rhesus monkey is described. The infection most probably was acquired from foxes of the Göttingen area through contaminated branches or foliage taken from the nearby forest. The most severely affected organs were the liver and the lung. A limited serological survey using the Em2plus ELISA revealed 5 more animals which so far remain clinically healthy as possibly infected.
