The authors examined coccidia infection from faecal samples of wild boars shot in the south region of Matra in Hungary. All animals were harvested in 2009-2011 hunting season. 71 (43.82%) positive results were found from the 162 wild boars tested for coccidia oocyst. The Eimeria spp. were indentified in 44 cases. Eimeria perminuta in 41 cases (93.18%), E. debliecki in 21 cases (47.72%), E. scabra in 11 cases (25.0%), and E. neodebliecki were found in 6 cases (13.63%). In case of the wild boars younger than 1 year 21 positive samples (29.57%) were found and in case of wild boars older than 1 year 50 (70.42%) animals were tested positively. The coccidia oocyst infection occurred more frequently in males - 42 (59.16%) were tested positively - as for the females 29 (40.84%) positive samples were found.
