Parasitology

  1. 1. PARASITOLOGY John Maru T. Tampus, BSN, RN, ICN-Certified
  2. 2. HELMINTHS• PARASITIC WORMS• USUALLY ENDOPARASITES• MULTI CELLULAR, EUCARYOTIC ORGANISM IN THE KINGDOM ANIMALIA. ROUND FLAT WORMS WORMS (PLATYHELMINTHS) (NEMATODES) CESTODES NEMATODES
  3. 3. NEMATODES• ASCARIS LUMBRICOIDES• TRICHURIS TRICHURIA• ENTEROBIUS VERMICULARIS• FILARIA• TRICHINELLA SPIRALIS
  4. 4. ASCARIS LUMBRICOIDES(ROUNDWORM)
  5. 5. ASCARIASIS
  6. 6. TRICHURIS TRICHURIA (WHIPWORM)
  7. 7. TRICHURIASIS
  8. 8. ENTEROBIUS VERMICULARIS
  9. 9. CESTODESAdult worms are found in the smallintestine; these infections are usuallywell tolerated or asymptomatic, butmay cause abdominal distress,dyspepsia, anorexia (or increasedappetite), nausea, localized pain, anddiarrhea
  10. 10. Taenia solium• is a flatworm parasite that lives in the small intestine of humans, which usually measures 3 to 5 meters in length• CARRIER: PORK• RAW MEAT.
  11. 11. TAENIA SAGINATA• Parasitic disease caused by a flatworm,, measuring between 5 and 8 meters in length• CARRIER: CATTLE• RAW CATTLE MEAT
  12. 12. TREMATODES• also called flukes, cause various clinical infections in humans. The parasites are so named because of their conspicuous suckers, the organs of attachment (trematos means "pierced with holes“.)
  13. 13. SCHISTOSOMA JAPONICUM• is an important parasite and one of the major infectious agents of schistosomiasis.This parasite has a very wide host range, infecting at least 31 species of wild mammals, including 9 carnivores, 16 rodents, one primate (Human), two insectivores and three artiodactyls and therefore it can be considered a true zoonosis.
