In pigs, the worms became localized in the portal vein and in its branches, the periportal tissue, the gastro-hepatic artery, the hepatic tissue, and the lungs, later in perirenal fat, the ureters and kidneys, and the psoas muscles. The liver was consistently a temporary habitat. Full development is attained only in the renal system, which furnishes the only outlet for eggs. The lungs are an accidental habitat.
