This week's case is from my laboratory. The following structures were found in a concentrated stool specimen from a middle-aged man from Ethiopia. They measure approximately 65 micrometers in length. What is the most-likely identification?
Every week I will post a new Case, along with the answer to the previous case. Please feel free to write in with your answers, comments, and questions. Also check out my image archive website at http://parasitewonders.com. Enjoy!
