While descriptions of emerging pathogens originating in animals that end up representing a risk of zoonosis are increasingly frequent, it does not happen just in the opposite case. Despite the current increase in contact between men and animals (livestock, pets, invasion of ecosystems, anthropogenic development of new habitats, etc) there is little bibliographical information on animal diseases trasmitted by humans. This work represents a comprehensive compilation of all descriptions to the actual date of bacterial, viral and parasitic processes that have led to cases of zooanthroponosis.
