Morphological and molecular characterization of Paragonimus
caliensis Little, 1968 (Trematoda:Paragonimidae) from Medellin and Pichinde, Colombia.
A rather rare finding in pulmonary imaging, the cavity formation may result from bacterial infections such as microaerophilic streptococci, viridans streptococci, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Haemophilus influenzae, Acinetobacter species, Escherichia coli, Legionella species, Fusobacterium necrophorum, Nocardia asteroides, mycobacteria such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis, nontuberculous mycobacteria and Mycobacterium avium complex, fungi such as Cryptococcus neoformans, Coccidioides, Aspergillus and mucormycosis, parasites such as Paragonimus
westermani and Echinococcus genus, and viral infections such as papilloma virus [1,2].

IgG to other parasites including Paragonimus
westermani , Paragonimiasis sichuanensis , Schistosoma japonicum , and Spirometra mansoni were all negative.
rDNA sequences of Paragonimus
westermani (AF040935.1) were used as an outgroup.
More recently elevated serum IgG4 levels were reported in two cases of pulmonary Paragonimus
westermani infection .
It is known that this crab species is recognized as a secondary intermediate host of Paragonimus
genus (lung fluke) for mammals, including human beings as the final host.
([dagger]) Other agents implicated were tetrodotoxin (3 outbreaks) and Campylobacter, chaconine, Paragonimus
, other virus, sulfite, and Trichinella (1 outbreak each).
Paragonimiasis is an infection caused by lung flukes of the genus Paragonimus
. In Asia, P.
Zoonotic: consumption trematodiases Clonorchis, Opisthorchis, of raw/poorly cooked Fasciola, and food Paragonimus
Human African Trypanosoma parasite By bites of infected trypanosomiasis sp.
Similarly, among trematodes prevalence of Fasciola was found highest (2.09%) and Paragonimus
was found to be the lowest (0.45%).
