: We obtained written informed consent from each parent/legal guardian of children diagnosed with CE before any collection of biological samples. This study was approved by the Ethics Committee of the Faculty of Medicine, Monastir, Tunisia (Acceptance Report IORG 0009738 N°22/OMB 0990–0279). Patients' relevant medical history and clinical data were recorded and anonymously treated. Protoscoleces were collected from parasite-infested organs during the postmortem routine inspection of animal carcasses by the official veterinarian and with his due consent. We performed no experimentation on animals; therefore, no approval from the Institutional Animal Ethics Committee was needed.
