Hydatid disease is considered as one of the important zoonotic diseases, due to the complications and the difficulties of the diagnosis and treatment. The present work evaluates the effect of musk concentrations on the viability of Echinococcus granulosus protoscoleces in vitro. Three different concentrations of musk 25, 50 and 100% were used, in addition to control for 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 min. While the rate of dead protoscolices was 6.98% in the control group, when protoscolices were exposed to musk concentration of 25% , the rate of dead protoscolices increased to 21.44, 34.20, 43.00, 51.40,79.34 and 100% after 10, 20,30,40,50 and 60 minutes, respectively . The mortality rate of protoscolices increased to 53.93, 81.36, 97.04 and 100% when they were exposed to the concentration of 50% after 10, 20, 30, and 40 min, respectively. One hundred percent mortality rate was observed at concentration of 100% after 30 min of exposure. This in vitro study showed that musk can be a promising source of potent antiprotoscolices.
