  • Paragonimus Infection

    Trematodes of the Paragonimus genus cause paragonimiasis, a parasitic disease that strikes carnivores, causing a subacute to chronic inflammatory disease of the lung. Of the 10 or more Paragonimus species that are human pathogens, only 8 cause significant infections in humans. The first case described in humans was at autopsy in Taiwan in 1879, when adult flukes were found in the lung.

  • Paragonimus Infection

    Trematodes of the Paragonimus genus cause paragonimiasis, a parasitic disease that strikes carnivores, causing a subacute to chronic inflammatory disease of the lung. Of the 10 or more Paragonimus species that are human pathogens, only 8 cause significant infections in humans. Sometimes lung fluke larvae accidentally travel to the brain or other organs and reproduce there. But because the secretion of the eggs from the brain is blocked the life cycle will not happen. If the worm goes to the spinal cord instead of the lungs, the host might become paralyzed. If it infects the heart, the host could die. Further research is being conducted to determine the drugs for the Paragonimus and how long it can affect humans.
