In water, eggs hatch into miracidiawhich then infect a molluscin which larval development and fission occurs. It is dorsoventrally flatted, with a unique pyramidal shape.

Gastrodiscoides – Wikipedia

Severe Gastrodiscoidea and Gastrodiscoides infestation is due to repeated consumption of the metacercaria larva from aquatic plants. Lower limb doppler revealed normal arterial and venous system with diffuse soft tissue edema.

It is typically an amphistome with the ventral sucker close to the posterior end. These outstanding features prompted him to create an entirely new genus, Gastrodiscoidesfor the specimen. gasstrodiscoides

Digenea as revealed by gominis electron microscopy”. Archived from the original on Enterobius vermicularis Enterobiasis Pinworm. In an experimental infection of the mollusc Helicorbis coenosusmiracidum develops into cercaria after 28— days of ingestion. A simple use of anti-helminthic or antiprotozoals in areas of high endemicity can prevent poor outcome among these patients. Infection causes a helminthic disease called gastrodiscoidiasis.

Gastrodiscoides Longitudinal section of an adult Scientific classification Kingdom: Fischoeder gastrociscoides the affinity with gaxtrodiscoides species and tentatively placed it in the genus Gastrodiscus Leuckart, Factors favouring the high endemicity are poor hygiene, consumption of undercooked food, the climatic compatibility for the parasites, swine population and usage of fecal manures for farming.

The large excretory bladder is in the middle, behind the ventral sucker. Giardia intestinalis and Entamoeba histolytica were concomitant protozoan parasites due to similar feco-oral contamination.

In some circumstances, fishes and other aquatic animals are found to be infected. Indeed, a number of mortality among Assamese children is attributed to this infection. Buckley, at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where he was then gatrodiscoides Milner Research Fellowwhose descriptions were based on high incidence of the parasitism among the Assamese in India.

Viral markers were negative. Flynn’s Parasites of Laboratory Animals 2 ed. Laboratory evaluation revealed microcytic anemia hemoglobin of However, the generic name was largely recognised as a synonym ; it was then known as Amphistomum Gastrodiscus hominis. Agri and Aquaculture Journals Dr. In view of hyper-infestation, she was given anti-helminthic under polyethylene glycol preparation to purge the dead worms to prevent intestinal obstruction.


Case Report Open Access.

The anterior region is a conical projection bearing a prominent oral sucker. Buckley’s report is the most useful to the modern classification of G. A young lady presented to us with bilateral pitting pedal edema of 2 months duration and laboratory evaluation gastrodiscoudes microcytic anemia, low total protein and albumin.

Its natural habitat is the colon of pigsand has also been found in rhesus monkeysorang-utansfishfield rats and Napu mouse-deer. Gastrodiscoides hominis Lewis and McConnell, The planorbid freshwater snails, Helicorbis coenosus shed the cercariae, cercariae encyst to metacercaria on aquatic plants, or in tadpoles, frogs, and clayfish [ 3 ] and ingested metacercaria excyst to flukes, reside in gastrosiscoides cecum and colon leading to mucoid diarrhea.

The eggs are readily distinguished from those of other trematodes by their rhomboid shape and distinct green colour.

Patients do not often directly show any symptoms, and if one appears, it indicates that the infection is already at a very high gwstrodiscoides.
