Clonorchiasis – [Pathology Poster]

 

Humans acquire clonorchiasis – infection by Clonorchis Sinensis (Chinese liver fluke), by eating raw or undercooked fish.

Adult worms are flat and transparent, live in the bile ducts, and pass eggs to the intestine and the faeces.

After ingestion by an appropriate snail, the egg hatches in a miracidium.
