This review aims to promote discussion about the situation of fasciolosis in ruminants in Brazil. The disease is still found more frequently in the South and Southeast regions, but reports outside these areas show the spread of the disease, including human cases. Many studies have been published on the diagnosis and control of fasciolosis, but development of field diagnosis methods and drugs that control all stages of the parasite is still a challenge. Studies should be carried out of new distribution areas and alternatives for control in Brazil, which depends on understanding the complex interactions between of the environment, ecosystems and hosts of this trematode.
