Human paragonimiasis caused by Paragonimus uterobilateralis in Liberia and Guinea, West Africa



Human paragonimiasis caused by Paragonimus uterobilateralis in Liberia and Guinea, West Africa



Tropenmedizin und Parasitologie 33(1): 15-16



Three children from Liberia and a woman from Guinea were found to be infected with Paragonimus uterobilateralis. The diagnosis was based on the dimensions and morphology of the eggs in the sputum and faeces, and P. uterobilateralis is known to occur in wild mammals and freshwater crabs in Liberia.
