The parasite is transmitted to dogs when they ingest the organs of other animals that contain hydatid cysts. The cysts develop into adult tapeworms in the dog.
Infected dogs shed tapeworm eggs in their feces which contaminate the ground. Sheep, cattle, goats, and pigs ingest tapeworm eggs in the contaminated ground; once ingested, the eggs hatch and develop into cysts in the internal organs. The most common mode of transmission to humans is by the accidental consumption of soil, water, or food that has been contaminated by the fecal matter of an infected dog.
Echinococcus eggs that have been deposited in soil can stay viable for up to a year. Alveolar echinococcosis AE is caused by infection with the larval stage of Echinococcus multilocularis. AE is found across the globe and is especially prevalent in the northern latitudes of Europe, Asia, and North America.
The adult tapeworm is normally found in foxes, coyotes, and dogs. Infection with the larval stages is transmitted to people through ingestion of food or water contaminated with tapeworm eggs.

Un caso de quiste hidatídico por echinococcus granulosus
The adult Echinococcus multilocularis 1. Gravid proglottids release eggs that are passed in the feces, and are immediately infectious. After ingestion by a suitable intermediate host, eggs hatch in the small intestine and releases a six-hooked oncosphere that penetrates the intestinal wall and migrates through the circulatory system into various organs primarily the liver for E. Numerous protoscolices develop within these cysts. The definitive host becomes infected by ingesting the cyst-containing organs of the infected intermediate host. After ingestion, the protoscolices evaginate, attach to the intestinal mucosa , and develop into adult stages in 32 to 80 days. Humans are aberrant intermediate hosts, and become infected by ingesting eggs.
