Angiostrongylus vasorum is a metastrongyloid parasite of dogs and foxes. It predominantly parasitises the pulmonary artery and its branches, but is also found in the right ventricle. It causes significant and frequent disease in south-west France, where it was first discovered; it has also been reported in many countries with a wet and mild climate, including Uganda, Spain, Denmark, Turkey, Brazil, Panama State, Ireland, the UK and occasionally the USA.
