A Human Case Of Ectopic Fascioliasis In Korea



A Human Case Of Ectopic Fascioliasis In Korea



Kisaengch'unghak Chapchi. Korean Journal of Parasitology 20(2): 191-200



A case of ectopic fascioliasis involving cecum and ascending colon was reported. This case was a 19-year old Korean female who had a history of postprandial aggravation of intermittent abdominal pain of 3 weeks duration. She was presented with an abdominal mass in the right upper quadrant, for which an operation(right hemicolectomy) was performed. Whole cecum and ascending colon showed multifocal tunnel-like necrotizing granulmas with central cavitations. Numerous Charcot-Leyden crystals were seen along tracts of the worm. The lesion was distributed throughout the entire thickness of the wall. Parasitological examination confirmed the worm found in the intestinal wall to be juvenile form of Fasciola species. Possibilities were discussed on the localization of the fluke and the mode of infection of present case.
