Studies on the lung fluke paragonimus westermani diploid type in the northern part of hyogo prefecture japan v. geographical distribution in mikata gun and kinosaki gun



Studies on the lung fluke paragonimus westermani diploid type in the northern part of hyogo prefecture japan v. geographical distribution in mikata gun and kinosaki gun



Japanese Journal of Parasitology 35(1): 17-24



During the period from July 1982 to May 1984, a total of 1,444 crabs, Geothelphusa dehaani, collected at 32 localities in Mikata-gun and Kinosaki-gun of Tajima province of Hyogo Prefecture were examined for the lung fluke. Amng them, 16 (4.6%) of 348 crabs collected at three localities were positive for Paragonimus metacercariae. Twenty metacercariae were obtained from the crabs. Twelve adult worms were recovered from two cats and a dog 93 to 100 days after infection with the metacercariae. On the basis of the morphological features of the adult worms recovered from the animals, all flukes were identified as the diploid type of Paragonimus westermani. Based on the present results, Mikata-gun was proved to be a new habitat of P. westermani-diploid type.
