Introduction

Fasciolopsis buski is known scientifically as the

largest intestinal fluke in humans.Infection occurs

primarily in Asia and the Indian subcontinent,

especially in area where humans raise pigs and

consume freshwater plants, so this helminth is also

named as “giant Asian intestinal fluke”.This giant

parasite has even been described as “meat worm”

or “reddish worm” in traditional Chinese medical book.


I. Morphology

(1) Adult

  • Long elliptic, flesh-colored, looks like

  • a slice of raw meat

  • The size: 20-75×8-20×0.5-3mm

  • The ventral sucker (filler-like

  • / infundibular ) is larger and near by the

  • much smaller oral sucker

  • Two coral-liked(珊瑚) testes are located

  • in the posterior half of the body

No seminal receptacle


ventral sucker is 3-4 times larger than oral sucker

vitellaria

(2) Egg

The thinner shell with an operculum

(not so obvious)

encloses an ovum

and 20-40 yolk cells

Slightly yellow in color

130-140×80-85µm (the largest helminth egg)

Oval / long elliptic in shape

II. Life cycle

  • Site of inhabitation: small intestine,

  • 2. Infective stage: metacercaria,

  • 3. Infective route and mode: eating raw water

  • plants with metacercariae,

  • 4. Intermediate hosts: Planorbis snail,

  • 5. Reservoir hosts: pig,

  • 6. Life span: 1-4 years,

  • 7. Egg output: 15,000/worm/day.

III. Pathology and Symptomatology Eggs

  • The enteritis due to worms’ adhesion manifests abdominal discomfort and

  • diarrhea.

  • 2. Malnutrition results from the worms

  • sharing food with the host and diarrhea.


IV. Diagnosis Eggs

Stool examination:

1. Direct fecal smear,

2. Water sedimentation method


V. Treatment and Prevention Eggs

1. The treatment of the patients, carriers and pigs

Drug of choice is praziquantel. Other effective

drugs include hexachloroparaxylene, bithionol (bitin).

The drug for pig is dipterex (敌百虫).

2. Prevention

(1) Health education

(2) Deal with night soil.

(3) Avoid feeding pigs on raw water plants


VI. Epidemiology Eggs

This disease is prevalent in Southeast

Asia,China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Burma, Kampuchea, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Philippines,Indonesia, Malaya and India

. In China it is found in 18 provinces, city and

autonomic region except north and west regions.

The prevalence of fasciolopiasis is relative to growing water plants and feeding pigs

on water plants.
