Annotation
tapeworm infect; see note under SPARGANUM; infect at larval stage: DIPHYLLOBOTHRIASIS is infect by adult
Scope Note
Infection of animals, including fish and man, with a developmental stage of Diphyllobothrium. This stage has recently been referred to as a plerocercoid but the name sparganum has persisted. Therefore, infection of fish or other animals with the plerocercoid larvae is sparganosis. Fish-eating mammals, including man, are the final hosts.
