Studies on a new pathogenic lung fluke paragonimus hueitungensis new species



Studies on a new pathogenic lung fluke paragonimus hueitungensis new species



Chinese Medical Journal (English Edition) 3(6): 379-394



A new pathogenic lung fluke P. hueit 'ungensis sp. nov. from Hueitung County of Hunan Province [China] is described. The salient features of the adults of this lung fluke, its 1st and 2nd intermediate hosts, rediae, cercariae, metacercariae and the results of feeding experiments on laboratory animals (albino rats, cats and dogs) are described and compared with other species of lung flukes. Biopsies of migratory subcutaneous nodules from 2 pediatric cases in the endemic area of Hueitung County have both shown the presence of immature lung flukes whose morphological features agree in general with those obtained through feeding experiments in laboratory animals. The reproductive organs of these biopsied immature flukes are poorly developed; they do not produce eggs in the human where they appear to migrate blindly from one place to another, indicating that man is not a suitable final host for this parasite in spite of its pathogenic implications. Clinical cases of this new form of paragonimiasis should not be confused with those due to paragonimiasis szech'uanensis.
