Cutaneous paragonimiasis - a case report

Cutaneous paragonimiasis - a case report

Japanese Journal of Parasitology 39(1): 63-66

The case of a 56-year-old female farmer who presented to the Miyazaki Medical College, Japan, with a mobile local swelling on the right lateral abdominal wall, is described. The lump was excised, and a living worm was found in the indurated subcutaneous tissue. The parasite could not be identified definitively as it was damaged during surgery, but based on the results of an Ouchterlony's double diffusion test using the patient's serum, a diagnosis of Paragonimus westermani infection was made.
