Anthropozoonosis is an infectious disease that is transmitted from animals to humans [1]. There are a number of anthropozoonotic diseases that are caused by viruses ( bird flu, cowpox, contagious ecthyma, herpes simiae, Margburg disease, monkey pox, rabies, swine flu), bacteria (anthrax, brucellosis, cat scratch disease, glanders, leptospirosis), prion (bovine spongiform encephalopathy), fungi (Microsporum canis infection, Trichophyton verrucosum infection), protozoa (sarcocystosis, toxoplasmosis), helminthes (gnathostomiasis, trichinosis), and ectoparasites (linguatuliasis, scabies) [2-4]. These diseases affect both sexes, and all age groups, and may occur in sporadic and epidemic form, and are reported from developing as well as developed countries of the world .
