Case of the Week 333

This week's beautiful case was donated by our loyal reader and contributor, Florida Fan.

It was retrieved from a 70-year-old man and measured nearly 45 cm in length x 0.8 - 1 cm in width. Several ova were expressed and measured 65 x 55 microns. No other clinical history is available.

Looks like Diphyllobothrium latum.
Would be interesting to know his CBC (Hg/Hct and MCV).

Intrigued by your question, I did check but the order was only for an O&P. No CBC was requested.
