First report of human infection with Gynaecotyla squatarolae and first Korean record of Haplorchis pumilio in a patient.
Parasitol Int. 2011 Jun; 60(2):227-9.PI

Abstract

Gynaecotyla squatarolae (Digenea: Microphallidae) is a minute intestinal trematode whose natural hosts are aves. We conducted a feces screening survey in a coastal village of Muan-gun, where the residents routinely consume brackish water crabs as a food. Through this survey, a 50-year-old female was found to shed gymnophallid and heterophyid eggs in her stool, and 845 adult flukes were collected from her purged stool. The adult worms were morphologically grouped into three species. A total of 841 worms were Gymnophalloides seoi. Three worms were identified as G. squatarolae, and the last one proven to be Haplorchis pumilio. This is the first worldwide report of G. squatarolae infection in humans, and the first H. pumilio infection in Korean people.
