  • A Case of Pleuropulmonary Paragonimiasis with Multiple Nodules in the Pleura. [Journal Article]
    Intern Med. 2020 Apr 30 [Online ahead of print]Ogata H, Harada E, … Matsumoto K
  • An asymptomatic 47-year-old woman was admitted with pleural effusion and pulmonary infiltrates 1 month after ingesting raw wild boar and deer meat. Both her blood and pleural fluid were eosinophilic. Thoracoscopy revealed multiple nodules of the pleura, and biopsy samples of the nodules showed necrosis with epithelioid cell granulomas. An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was positive for antibod…
  • [Complete mitochondrial genomes of Paragonimus westermani in China and phylogenetic analysis of various geographical isolates]. [Journal Article]
    Zhongguo Xue Xi Chong Bing Fang Zhi Za Zhi. 2020 Jan 02; 32(1):28-35.Gu MJ, Huang WL, … Zhao QP
  • CONCLUSIONS: The genetic distance between the phenotypes of P. westermani isolated from Fujian Province is near at a mitochondrial genome level, with no remarkable genetic differentiation seen; however, the mutation and structural changes in the non-coding region may result in the phenotypic variations. In addition, there is a distinct variation of the evolutionary rate in the mitochondrial coding genes, suggesting the selection of appropriate molecular markers during the phylogenic researches.
  • Asymptomatic Human Paragonimiasis among the Karen People in Tak Province, Thailand: A Case Report. [Journal Article]
    Korean J Parasitol. 2020 Feb; 58(1):57-60.Kusolsuk T, Phuphisut O, … Nawa Y
  • During the mobile clinic activities in Tak Province, Thailand, Paragonimus sp. eggs were found in a fecal sample of a 72-year-old Karen resident. Paragonimus DNA was amplified from the stool sample and identified to P. heterotremus. The patient did not have any symptoms. Apparent pulmonary lesion was not found on the chest X-ray. The patient admitted habitual consumption of semi-cooked or roasted…
  • [Pulmonary paragonimiasis. Pediatric case report]. [Case Reports]
    Arch Argent Pediatr. 2019 12 01; 117(6):e659-e663.Maticorena Agramonte VF, Ormeño Julca AJ, … Belloso Rodríguez JA
  • Paragonimiasis is a parasite infection caused by several species of Paragonimus, a trematode that is transmitted through the consumption of raw or undercooked crabs and that has been found in the subtropical areas of America, Asia and Africa. This infection mainly affects the lungs, causing clinical and radiological manifestations very similar to pulmonary tuberculosis, so it should always be inc…
  • How globalization and climate change could affect foodborne parasites. [Review]
    Exp Parasitol. 2020 Jan; 208:107807.Pozio E
  • Foodborne parasites, most of which are zoonotic, represent an important human health hazard. These pathogens which include both protozoa (e.g., Cryptosporidium spp., Cyclospora cayetanensis, Toxoplasma gondii) and helminths (e.g., liver and intestinal flukes, Fasciola spp., Paragonimus spp., Echinococcus spp., Taenia spp., Angiostrongylus spp., Anisakis spp., Ascaris spp., Capillaria spp., Toxoca…
  • Intraspinal Paragonimiasis in Children: MRI Findings and Suggestions for Pathogenesis. [Journal Article]
    AJNR Am J Neuroradiol. 2019 12; 40(12):2166-2171.Qin Y, Cai J, … He X
  • CONCLUSIONS: MR imaging is sensitive for detecting and characterizing spinal paragonimiasis. The MR imaging features of intraspinal granulomas included localization to the extradural space and thoracic segment, connections between intraspinal lesions and pleural lesions through the intervertebral foramen, and hemorrhagic foci within the mass. These findings support an intraspinal mode of paragonimiasis pathogenesis: The Paragonimus larvae migrate from the chest into the extradural space through the intervertebral foramen.
  • LiverTox: Clinical and Research Information on Drug-Induced Liver Injury: Antihelmintic Agents [BOOK]
    . National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases: Bethesda (MD)BOOK
  • Helminths consist of a diverse group of parasitic worms including nematodes (round worms), trematodes (flat worms) and cestodes (tapeworms). These infect a significant proportion of persons living in resource poor regions. The pathophysiology of disease varies depending on the species and the worm burden. Infections caused by Strongyloides stercoralis, Toxocara sp. and Enterobius vermicularis (pi…
  • Multi-disciplinary integration of networking through the RNAS+: Research on other target diseases. [Review]
    Adv Parasitol. 2019; 105:95-110.Leonardo L, Bergquist R, … Zhou XN
  • In 2005, the network decided to increase its number of target diseases to include other helminthic zoonoses such as fascioliasis, clonorchiasis, opisthorchiasis, paragonimiasis and cysticercosis and in the process expanding membership to include South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand and Japan. NTDs were eventually included as awareness is heightened on these diseases affecting poor and developing countr…
  • Multiplex PCR for sexing Schistosoma japonicum cercariae and its utility. [Journal Article]
    Parasitol Res. 2019 Oct; 118(10):2885-2890.Xu J, Li C, … Xia C
  • Accurate discrimination of the Schistosoma japonicum cercariae gender is very important for establishing monosexual infection animal models and for standardizing the real intensity of infection. In this study, a multiplex PCR technique consisting of two pairs of primers, of which one amplifies a 185-bp band specific for the W chromosome and the other amplifies a 420-bp band for the Z chromosome, …
  • Parasitic pneumonia caused by Paragonimus spp. in a wild Royal Bengal Tiger, Mysuru, South India. [Journal Article]
    J Parasit Dis. 2019 Sep; 43(3):528-533.Dharanesha NK, Saminathan M, … Byregowda SM
  • Parasitic pneumonia induced by genus Paragonimus involves many species, which affects both humans and animals and it is a food borne zoonotic disease. In this report, we have described the gross and histopathological findings of Paragonimus fluke infection in lungs of tiger. The postmortem examination of sub adult male wild tiger (Panthera tigris tigris) died in captivity was conducted, earlier w…
