We describe two cases of fascioliasis from rural areas of Rio de Janeiro that are endemic for schistosomiasis, both of which were found during a coprological survey. The patient from Paracambi complained of dizziness. The patient from Sumidouro complained of dizziness, tiredness and cough. She was treated with praziquantel and her stool parasitological examination became negative.

Keywords : Fasciolíasis; Zoonosis; Paracambi; Sumidouro.
