Clonorchiasis

(Chinese or oriental liver fluke)

Clonorchiasis is an infection with the liver fluke Clonorchis sinensis. An infection is acquired by eating freshwater fish nichtdurchgegartem. Symptoms may consist of fever, chills, epigastric pain, soft liver enlargement, diarrhea and mild jaundice. The diagnosis is made by the detection of eggs in the stool or duodenal fluid. The treatment is carried out with praziquantel or albendazole.

Flukes are parasitic flat worms which various parts of the body of infecting (eg., Blood vessels, the gastrointestinal tract, lungs, liver), depending on the type.

Flukes are parasitic flat worms that different parts of the body infected (eg., Blood vessels, gastrointestinal tract, lungs, liver), depending on the type. Clonorchis comes in the Far East, especially in Korea, Japan, Taiwan and South China, endemic and it can also lead to infections elsewhere such. As in immigrants and people who eat fish that was imported from endemic areas. Pathophysiology Adult forms of C. sinensis live in the bile ducts. The eggs are excreted in the stool and picked up by water snails. Infected water snails set then cercariae (free-swimming larvae) free, which can infect a variety of freshwater fish. People become infected by eating raw, not fried, dried, salted or pickled fish containing metacercariae cysts (resting or maturity). Metacercariae are released into the duodenum, pass through the papilla of Vater into the bile duct and migrate to the smaller intrahepatic ducts (or occasionally in the gallbladder and pancreatic ducts), where they mature within approximately 1 month to adult animals. The adults may live ? 20 years and grow to 3-5 mm to 10-25 mm. Life cycle of Clonorchis.
