Abstract

The liver fluke Platynosomum fastosum was identified upon necropsy ofthree ex-captive orangutans (Pongo pygmaeus) which had been part of arehabilitation program for reintroduction to die wild. This trematodehas not been reported in orangutans previously and is commonly found in cats in Southeast Asia. Cross infection from cats via intermediate hosts, to orangutans kept in captivity as pets, could explain their presence in the latter. Although P. fastosum caused intrahepatic and bile duct damage, death of the hosts could not be attributed solely to the presence of the liver fluke infection.
