Abstract:

Four species of cestode tapeworms inhabit the human intestine: , , , and . Rarer larval cestode infections affecting humans include coenurosis (), sparganosis (), and cysticercosis by . Eggs can be easily seen by microscopical examination of stools. Eggs should be reported as sp. because direct observation does not confirm the species. taeniasis and cysticercosis are highly endemic to all parts of the developing world where pigs are raised as a food source. The infection is now also increasingly diagnosed in industrialized countries due to immigration of tapeworm carriers from zones of endemicity. is the smallest of the intestinal tapeworms of humans and also the most common tapeworm infection throughout the world. is normally a parasite of mice, and its life cycle characteristically involves a beetle as intermediate host. In humans, transmission is usually accomplished by direct ingestion of infective eggs containing oncospheres. Diagnosis of the infection rests on finding the spherical eggs in feces by microscopy. Eggs are characteristic and should be reported as . Beside physical examination, diagnosis usually is based on imaging techniques including ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) supported by serology. and have canids as definitive hosts and sheep as their normal intermediate host, harboring the larvae or coenurus. Diagnosis is based on pathological demonstration of the typical larval membrane and multiple scolices.
