Answer to Case 49

Answer: Taenia proglottid (fragment) and egg.

This case demonstrates that not all specimens are picture-perfect. Only a portion of a proglottid is present and the egg obtained is partly obscured. However, the outer radial striations and inner hooklets are visible, allowing definitive diagnosis.
