In Asia, fish-borne zoonotic trematodes (FZT), including liver and intestinal flukes
, are widely reported (1-3).
species identified (mean body length x width measurements in [micro]m) were Haplorchis pumilio (632 x 291), H.
viverrini flukes, metacercariae of the zoonotic intestinal flukes
Centrocestus formosanus, Haplorchis taichui, and H.
At the point of attachment, intestinal flukes
cause inflammation, ulceration, and mucus secretion.
However, eggs of other hepatic and intestinal flukes
also can be found in humans (1).
