Case of the Week 402
This week's case was generously donated by Dr. Rocco LaSala. The specimen was retrieved from the stool of a 70 year-old-woman with approximately 12 months of diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and unintended weight loss (> 40 lbs). The structures are thin, brown, and 'thread-like', measuring approximately 0.7 mm in width.
