Trematodes Attacking Dogs and Humans

  • 353 Accesses

Part of the Parasitology Research Monographs book series (Parasitology Res. Monogr.,volume 13)

Abstract

Several trematode species run their life cycle using humans as final hosts and snails as intermediate hosts. Humans, however, are additionally attacked by trematode larvae, which may lead to severe skin inflammations.

Keywords
