A serological survey for antibodies to Leishmania spp., Toxoplasma gondii, Entamoeba histolytica, and Schistosoma spp. was carried out among 4 species of commensal rodents (Rattus norvegicus, R. rattus, Mus musculus and Acomys cahirinus) trapped from different localities within the Dakahlia Governorate, Egypt. Sera from these rodents were tested by indirect haemagglutination.
