Human visceral pentastomiasis can be caused by several species of pentastomes: Linguatula
serrata (worldwide, predominantly the Middle East), A.
Linguatulosis caused by Linguatula
serrata (Pentastomida: Linguatulidae) which is entitled "tong-worm" is a cosmopolitan, zoonotic infection (Sadeghi-Dehkordi et al., 2014; Yazdani et al., 2014).
Effects of commercial trawling activities in the diet of the flat fish Citharus linguatula
(Osteichthyes: Pleuronectiformes) and the starfish Astropecten irregularis (Echinodermata: Asteroidea).
(14) The worm was later identified by its morphology and by molecular phylogenetic analysis as the third instar larva of Linguatula
serrata, the tongue worm.
Linguatulosis is a rare zoonotic parasitic disease resulting from invasion of the body by wormlike parasites of the genus Linguatula
, also known as tongue worms .
serrata and Armillifer armillatus were associated with 99% of the reported cases of human pentastomiasis (Drabick, 1987; Pare, 2008).
Of 400 total lungs, 46 cases (11.5%) were infected by hydatid cyst, of 320 sheep lungs, only 12 cases (3.7%) were infected by Linguatula
