vogeli cestodes (adult cestode carriers; wild rodents, especially pacas (Cuniculus paca), may be the most common intermediate hosts (larvae or metacestode
An aberrant acephalic metacestode
and other parasites of Masticophis flagellum (Reptilia: Serpentes) from Texas.
Humans are intermediate hosts in which the infective metacestode
stage develops after peroral infection with eggs.
Hepatic cystic echinococcosis is caused by infection with the metacestode
stage of the tapeworm Echinococcosis granulosus.
infection in pigs may cause fever, muscle pains, weakness, or, if the CNS is involved, meningencephalitis or epilepsy.
villosum, the metacestode
Nybelinia surmenicola, the digenean metacercaria Otodistomum sp.
The larvae then enter the metacestode
(adult larva) stage, becoming a cysticercus.
The resorption of Tylocephalum metacestode
larvae has also been reported in other bivalves with the exception of the pearl oyster Pinctada spp.
We describe the identification of a previously genetically uncharacterized species within the newly proposed Taeniid (Cestoda) genus Versteria (1), which caused fatal metacestode
infection in a captive juvenile Bornean orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus).
In human infections, after a person ingests eggs, the metacestode
cells of E.
Human alveolar echinococcosis (AE), caused by the metacestode
stage of the fox tapeworm Echinococcus multilocularis, is a rare zoonosis in Germany, mainly occurring in the south (1).
After a reexamination of material previously misconstrued by others, Thatcher and Sousa concluded that a metacestode
found in a nutria (Myocastor coypus), a South American rodent that had died in a United States zoo, was the larval stage of E.
