Trematode eggs in the peritoneal cavity of man in Honduras


American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 26(4): 684-687
Trematode eggs in the peritoneal cavity of man in Honduras
Surgical repair of an inguinal hernia in a 19-year-old man in Honduras revealed massive numbers of small granulomata containing trematode eggs on the omentum and other peritoneal surfaces. The eggs resembled those of Achillurbainia recondita Travassos, 1942, a species found in the maxillary sinuses of the opossum, Didelphis marsupialis. Species of Achillurbainis (syn. Poikilorchis Fain and Vandepitte, 1957) have been reported in retroauricular cysts or abscesses in residents of West Africa and Southeast Asia.
