Pentastomosis in costa rica caused by linguatula serrata and its differential diagnosis from linguatula recurvata

Pentastomosis in costa rica caused by linguatula serrata and its differential diagnosis from linguatula recurvata

Revista Latinoamericana de Microbiologia 28(2): 157-166

A young male, 15 years old, from Aquiares, Turrialba, Costa Rica showed in a exploratory laparatomy, lymphatic nodes with infective nymphs of Linguatula serrata (Pentastomida). A comparison with nymphs of L. serrata also obtained in Costa Rica from domestic rabbit and opossum, and also of measurements given for L. serrata and L. recurvata from South America, showed differences in the number of body annuli. The measurements of the mouth ring and mouth hooks, were greater for L. recurvata. At the contrary, the size of the body spines are markedly smaller for this latter species. It was insisted in the apparent correlation between pentastomosis and neoplasias. Some epidemiological aspects of this parasitic infestation in Costa Rica were considered.
