Re: CDC: flukes rare to get in United States

Biliary Parasites

Common biliary parasites include the nematode Ascaris lumbricoides (Choi et al., 1993), and the trematodes Opisthorchis viverrini (Sripa et al., 2004) and Opisthorchis felineus (Sripa et al., 2004), Clonorchis sinensis (Lee et al., 1992), and Fasciola hepatica (Gulsen et al., 2006), and the metacestodes of Echinococcus granulosus and Echinococcus multilocularis (Shemesh et al., 1986). Among these parasites, A. lumbricoides and C. sinensis are the most prevalent and clinically significant parasitic infections detected in the biliary system (Leung and Yu, 1997).

Ascaris lumbricoides - Southeastern US

E. granulosus occurs practically worldwide, and more frequently in rural, grazing areas where dogs ingest organs from infected animals. E. multilocularis occurs in the northern hemisphere, including central Europe and the northern parts of Europe, Asia, and North America.
