in the reference is used for diagnosis of sparganosis
mansoniother than clonorchiasis.
Example 2: Keisuke Goto, MD, a pathologist in Japan, shared microscopic images of a very classic case of sparganosis
on the Dermatopathology Facebook group.

with the notable additions of Sparganosis
(a parasite that infests human muscle, forming encyst lumps) and Melioidosis (a bacterial disease causing abscesses of the internal organs).

is a parasitic infection caused by the plerocercoid larvae of the genus Spirometra.
In this case, humans serve as intermediate hosts and this is called sparganosis
is a parasitic zoonosis endemic in Asia, Europe, and North America.
Additional laboratory studies may be most useful in diagnosing difficult cases, including degenerating cysts, and in differentiating cysticercosis from other parasitic infections such as sparganosis
refers to tissue infection with the pleurocercoid larvae of the genera Diphyllobothrium (from the Greek di ["two"] + phyllon ["leaf"] + bothrion ["pit"]) or Spirometra (from the Greek speira ["coil"] + metra ["uterus"]).
His research interests include parasite biology, phylogeny, and molecular diagnosis of parasitic helminths, mainly diphyllobothriosis and sparganosis
For example, the uncommon infection sparganosis
is given the same coverage as cysticercosis and echinococcosis, and more space is devoted to infection with Angiostrongylus than to strongyloidiasis.
