Axillary sparganosis, changes in ultrasound images over six months: A case report.Radiol Case Rep 2020; 15(3):177-180RC
Sparganosis is an infestation caused by a tapeworm belonging to the genus Spirometra. The typical radiologic findings of sparganosis describe elongated, folded, band or tubular, hypoechoic structures with surrounding increased echogenicity in ultrasonography. These imaging features have been highly consistent with pathology results. Here, we report an interesting case of axillary sparganosis that manifested changes on ultrasound images over a period of 6 months.
