Regional distribution of autochthonous alveolar echinococcosis in Europe, from 532 diagnoses ascertained from 1982 to 2000. Dots represent place of residence (at time of diagnosis or last medical record) of 1–5 patients. In Austria, Belgium, Germany, and Poland, administrative units for locating patients are the municipality; in France and Switzerland, dots are placed at random in larger units (“Arrondissement” for France, “Kanton” for Switzerland).
