Show Summary Details


A large variety of trematodes result in millions of fish- and other food-borne human infections annually. These are mostly in Asia but some more widespread. Man may be an important or occasional definitive host acquiring infection from eating fish, frogs, snails, crustaceans, ants, and water plants, and from drinking water. Consumption of these raw/undercooked produces human infection. Adult flukes occur in the biliary system, intestine, lungs, and occasionally ectopically.
