solium commonly forms cysticerci
in tissues of various atypical intermediate hosts, including rabbits, camels, dogs, cats, and humans (2,4).
Distribution of Taenia Saginata Cysticerci
in tissues of experimentally infected Cattle.
Deeply situated cysticerci
are not evident unless presenting clinical symptoms".
are round to oval, contain semitranslucent to whitish fluid, and usually measure 1 to 2 cm.
Immunoblot analisys using antigens from Taenia crassiceps cysticerci
in the diagnosis of swine cysticercosis.
, the larvae of Taenia solium, also known as bladder worms, can form cysts as large as 1 to 2 cm in muscle and manifest as palpable nodules mimicking neoplasms.
Damage depends on the site and number of cysticerci
hydatigena is called cysticercosis because the larvae are called cysticerci
in these species.
Usually both 'healthy' (active) and 'involuted' (inactive) cysticerci
lack inflammatory response, which is restricted to 'currently degenerating' cysts whose ability to evade host defences is becoming faulty.
1 Whereas parenchymal cysticerci
can be readily identified on CT and MRI, most authors agree that it is difficult to identify lesions within the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) spaces.
Serodiagnosis of human cysticercosis using a chromatofocuse antigenic preparation of Taenia solium cysticerci
in an enzymelinked immunosorbent assay.
In 1974, Herbert found that the immune system might participate in removal of cysticerci
from the host.
