ABSTRACT.

The Anoplocephalidae family comprises a group of parasites that affect reptiles, birds, and mammals. Humans can be accidentally infected by ingesting contaminated mites. We present a case of human bertiellosis in Brazil. Our report reinforces the importance of correctly identifying the parasite to provide adequate treatment.
