  11. 15. Cestodes(Tape worms). Taenia solium & cysticercosis: <ul><li>Cysticercosis: the larva acquired by ova autoinfetion or regurgitation from the adult worm in the intestine ,may penitrate the stoamch wall & go to develop as cysts in muscles, skin&brain(epilepsy,hydrocephalus). </li></ul><ul><li>Diagnosis: ova in stool, CT & MRI for brain cysts,ELISA test for antibody detection. </li></ul><ul><li>Treatment of cysticercosis is by praziquantel or albendazole combined with prednisolone to prevent brain edema & antiepilepti drugs are given to prevent fits untill full recovery. </li></ul>
  12. 16. Cestodes(Tape worms). Echinococcus granulosus & multilocularis(hydatid cysts): <ul><li>Acquired by ingesting ova passed with dogs(granulosus type) or wild animal faeces( foxes, wolves in multilocularis type) into green vegetables which develop into cysts in the liver, lungs, bones, brain or any other body sites . </li></ul><ul><li>The multilocularis type behaves as malignant disease. </li></ul><ul><li>Prevention: Treatment of Domestic dogs, washing of vegetables. </li></ul><ul><li>Diagnosis: chest X ray, U/S, CT, MRI to detect cysts in tissues, CF test & ELISA to detect parasite antigenes. </li></ul><ul><li>Surgery to remove cysts. </li></ul>
  13. 17. Cestodes(Tape worms). Echinococcus granulosus & multilocularis(hydatid cysts): <ul><li>Drugs are not so effective, although albendazole in high doses for long time & praziquantel are given perioperatively to reduce spillage & in inoperable cases. </li></ul>
  14. 18. Humans Accidental Intermediate Host
  15. 22. Cestodes(Tape worms). Echinococcus granulosus & multilocularis(hydatid cysts):
  16. 23. Cestodes(Tape worms). Echinococcus granulosus & multilocularis(hydatid cysts): Scolex Adult worm Taenia saginata Infected beef
  17. 27. <ul><li>D. latum is the longest tapeworm in humans usually located in the lower jejunum or upper ileum. </li></ul><ul><li>A typical worm is 4–15 m in length, 10–20 mm in width. </li></ul><ul><li>It has an elongated scolex with two sucking grooves, a thin neck & 3000–4000 proglottids, produce up to 1 million eggs each day that excreted into the intestinal lumen & passed in feces. </li></ul><ul><li>The life-cycle is relatively complex, involves larval stages that develop in water & in two intermediate hosts, fresh water crustaceans& fish. </li></ul><ul><li>Humans are infected by eating raw fish. </li></ul>
  18. 28. <ul><li>Human cases restricted to Northern Europe, Canada , Alaska. </li></ul><ul><li>Can be single or multiple& may result in symptoms as fatigue, weakness, parasthesia, diarrhea&craving for salt. </li></ul><ul><li>2% develop vit B12 deficiency, because of B12 absorption by the adult worms & interference with the ileal absorption of cobalamins. </li></ul><ul><li>Diagnosis: made by the detection of eggs in feces </li></ul><ul><li>Treated with a variety of drugs including praziquantel. </li></ul><ul><li>Prevention: The infective larval forms in fish (plerocercoids), can be readily killed by cooking fish at 55°C for 5 min or by freezing for 8–72 h. </li></ul>
  19. 29. Trematodes(Fluke). Shistosomiasis (Bilharziasis): <ul><li>One of the most common causes of morbidity & mortality in tropical areas, S.Hematobium in Iraq & other areas of middle east, S.Mansoni in Egypt & other parts of Africa & S. Japonicum & Mekonji in south east Asia. </li></ul><ul><li>Acquired by walking bare feet in water containing the infective form cercaria. </li></ul><ul><li>Patients excrete the eggs by urination/defecating in water which are hatched & develop in fresh water snails into the infective stage ceraria. </li></ul><ul><li>After penitrating the skin, cercaria goes throught he lungs, then caried by the blood to their definte site where they live, the vesial plexus of veins in Hematobium & the portal system & liver in other types. </li></ul>

Shistosomiasis (Bilharziasis): Diagnosis. <ul><li>Urine & stool exam for terminal spined eggs in hematobium & lateral spined eggs in other types. </li></ul><ul><li>Retal spine biospsy through proctoscpe or biopsy through sigmoidoscope/cystoscope for egg inspection. </li></ul><ul><li>Radiography & U/S for complications. </li></ul><ul><li>ELISA/PCR test of blood to detect shistosomal antigenes. </li></ul>
  24. 35. Trematodes(Fluke). Shistosomiasis (Bilharziasis): Treatment. Type Praziquantel Oxamniquine Metrifonate Mansoni 40mg/kg once 15mg/kg*2*2 days Not useful Japonicum 40mg/kg*2 in one day Not useful Not useful Hematobium 40mg/kg once Not useful 7.5mg/kg every 2 weeks * 3
  25. 36. Trematodes(Fluke). Shistosomiasis (Bilharziasis): prevention. <ul><li>Avoid urination & defecation in water. </li></ul><ul><li>Erradication of snails. </li></ul><ul><li>Wearing of boots when contacting water. </li></ul><ul><li>Store water for 3 days before use as cercaria will die in 3 days. </li></ul><ul><li>Mass treatment of population. </li></ul><ul><li>All these are not beneficial in japonicum as there are other animal reservior of infection which contaminate water by eggs. </li></ul>
