Both literature and practice showed that trichinellosis has become an important epidemiological problem in the whole world. It proved so in the Republic of Croatia, too, where trichinellosis has been exterminated according to the public health law. This project deals with the pig trichinellosis in Croatian region of Imotska krajina. In our veterinary laboratory 67 735 samples of pork were analyzed between 1995-2003. The most frequent origin of the disease is pork, invasively contaminating men. Both expert and public discussions show that this problem in Croatia has recently become very actual. Greater migrations of both people and animals have increased the possibility of contamination. It has been noticed through the reports in daily newspapers and it provoked some decisions of the Government. Trichinellosis used to appear regularly in the Eastern Croatian region (especially Slavonia), but during and after the Croatia Independence War it spread throughout Croatia.
