  • ASCARIS LUMBRICOIDES(ROUNDWORM) View slide
  • ASCARIASIS
  • TRICHURIS TRICHURIA (WHIPWORM)
  • TRICHURIASIS
  • ENTEROBIUS VERMICULARIS
  • 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
  • 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.
  • TAENIA SAGINATA• Parasitic disease caused by a flatworm,, measuring between 5 and 8 meters in length• CARRIER: CATTLE• RAW CATTLE MEAT
  • 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“.)
  • 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.
