PA3 67    Ancylostoma Duodenale / Old World Hookworm, Eggs    
Lives in the small intestine of hosts such as humans, cats and dogs; abundant throughout the world, including in the following areas: southern Europe, north Africa, India, China, southeast Asia, some areas in the United States, the Caribbean, and South America.

PA3 68    Brugia Malayi / Brugian Filariasis,  Microfilaria    
A nematode (roundworm), one of the three causative agents of lymphatic filariasis (elephantiasis) in humans; restricted to South and South East Asia.

PA3 69    Capillaria Hepatica /  Hepaticola Hepatica / Calodium Hepaticum, Eggs    
Causes hepatic capillariasis; found in rats, a wide variety of other wild and domestic mammals, and occasionally humans; has been found in temperate and tropical zones on every continent.

PA3 70    Dicrocoelium Dendriticum / Sheep Liver Fluke    
Usually infects the bile duct; in heavier infections, bile ducts and the biliary epithelium may become enlarged in addition to the generation of fibrous tissue surrounding the ducts, and as a result, causing an enlarged liver (hepatomegaly) or inflammation of the liver (cirrhosis);  worldwide distribution particularly in grazing land near forest areas (good for molluscs) and dry pastures with little other biodiversity (good for the ants) both increased parasite prevalence (molluscs and ants are hosts). Humans can become hosts after accidentally ingesting infected ants.

PA3 71    Diphyllobothrium Latum,Immature Proglottid    
Tapeworm causing Diphyllobothriasis in humans through consumption of raw or undercooked fish; native to Scandinavia, western Russia, and the Baltics, though it is now also present in North America, especially the Pacific Northwest.

PA3 72    Diphyllobothrium Latum,Mature Proglottid    
Tapeworm causing Diphyllobothriasis in humans through consumption of raw or undercooked fish; native to Scandinavia, western Russia, and the Baltics, though it is now also present in North America, especially the Pacific Northwest.

PA3 73    Dipylidium Caninum, Eggs    
Infects organisms afflicted with fleas and canine chewing lice, including dogs, cats, and sometimes human pet-owners, especially children; most infections are asymptomatic, but sometimes  mild diarrhoea, abdominal colic, anorexia, restlessness, constipation, rectal itching and pain due to emerging proglottids through the anal cavity.

PA3 74    Dipylidium Caninum, Immature Proglottid     
Infects organisms afflicted with fleas and canine chewing lice, including dogs, cats, and sometimes human pet-owners, especially children; most infections are asymptomatic, but sometimes  mild diarrhoea, abdominal colic, anorexia, restlessness, constipation, rectal itching and pain due to emerging proglottids through the anal cavity.

PA3 75    Dipylidium Caninum, Mature Proglottid     
Infects organisms afflicted with fleas and canine chewing lice, including dogs, cats, and sometimes human pet-owners, especially children; most infections are asymptomatic, but sometimes  mild diarrhoea, abdominal colic, anorexia, restlessness, constipation, rectal itching and pain due to emerging proglottids through the anus.

PA3 76    Dirofilaria Immitis, Microfilariae     
A parasitic roundworm that is spread from host to host through the bites of mosquitoes; definitive host is the dog, but it can also infect cats, wolves, coyotes, foxes and other animals and under very rare circumstances, humans. (Microfilariae are live young that circulate in the bloodstream for as long as two years, waiting for the next stage in their life cycles in the gut of a bloodsucking mosquito.)

PA3 77    Echinococcus Granulosus /  Hydatid Worm / Hyper Tapeworm / Dog Tapeworm, Cyst    
First document in Alaska but is distributed world-wide; especially prevalent in parts of Eurasia, north and east Africa, Australia, and South America. Most prevalent in sheep farming communities.

PA3 78    Fasciola Hepatica / Common Liver Fluke,Eggs    
Infects the livers of various mammals, including humans; human infections occur in parts of Europe, northern Iran, northern Africa, Cuba, South America, especially the Altiplano regions of the Peruvian and Bolivian Andes; also an emerging problem  in Vietnam and Cambodia.

PA3 79    Hymenolepis Nana / Vampirolepis Nana / Dwarf Tapeworm    
One of the most common intestinal worms infecting humans, especially children; common in temperate zones. Most people who are infected do not have any symptoms. Those who have symptoms may experience nausea, weakness, loss of appetite, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. Young children, especially those with a heavy infection, may develop a headache, itchy bottom, or have difficulty sleeping. Sometimes infection is misdiagnosed as a pinworm infection.

PA3 80    Loa Loa / Eye Worm    
Found in Africa and India; travels from the entry site through subcutaneous tissues, causing inflammation in the skin wherever they travel.
 
PA3 81    Macracanthorhynchus Hirudinaceus, Eggs    
Lives in the intestines of pigs, and very occasionally in humans or dogs. It causes enteritis, gastritis or peritonitis.

PA3 82    Mansonella  
Found in Africa and tropical Americas, spread by biting midges or blackflies; usually asymptomatic.

PA3 83    Schistosoma Japonicum, Cercaria    
Found in China, but now eradicated in Japan; often asymptomatic, but may experience fever, cough, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, hepatosplenomegaly, and eosinophilia. Occasionally central nervous system lesions occur: cerebral granulomatous disease may be caused by ectopic S. japonicum eggs in the brain.

PA3 84    Schistosoma Japonicum, Female    
Found in China, but now eradicated in Japan; often asymptomatic, but may experience fever, cough, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, hepatosplenomegaly, and eosinophilia.

PA3 85    Schistosoma Japonicum, Miracidium    
Found in China, but now eradicated in Japan; often asymptomatic, but may experience fever, cough, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, hepatosplenomegaly, and eosinophilia.

PA3 86    Schistosoma Japonicum, Sporocyst    
Found in China, but now eradicated in Japan; often asymptomatic, but may experience fever, cough, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, hepatosplenomegaly, and eosinophilia.

PA3 87    Schistosoma Mansoni, Male    
Causes intestinal schistosomiasis; present in many countries, predominantly in South America and the Caribbean, Africa including Madagascar, and the Middle East.

PA3 88    Spirometra Mansoni, Egg    
Occurs worldwide in distribution, although most human cases of sparganosis are recorded from southeast Asian countries. Sparganosis is endemic in animals throughout North America, although human cases from this area are rare.

PA3 89    Spirometra Mansoni, Immature Proglottid    
Occurs worldwide in distribution, although most human cases of sparganosis are recorded from southeast Asian countries. Sparganosis is endemic in animals throughout North America, although human cases from this area are rare.

PA3 90    Spirometra Mansoni, Mature Proglottid    
Occurs worldwide in distribution, although most human cases of sparganosis are recorded from southeast Asian countries. Sparganosis is endemic in animals throughout North America, although human cases from this area are rare.

PA3 91    Taenia Saginata / Beef Tapeworm,Immature Proglottid    
Cattle are the intermediate hosts, where larval development occurs, while humans are definitive hosts harbouring the adult worms; found globally and most prevalently where cattle are raised and beef is consumed. It is relatively common in Africa, some parts of Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and Latin America.

PA3 92    Taenia Solium / Pork Tapeworm, Eggs    
Found throughout the world, and is most prevalent in countries where pork is eaten; usually asymptomatic, but in severe cases leads to intestinal irritation, anaemia, and indigestion.

PA3 93    Toxocara Canis / Dog Roundworm    
Humans can be infected just by stroking an infected dog's fur and accidentally ingesting infective eggs that may be present on the dog's fur; results in hepatomegaly, myocarditis, respiratory failure and vision problems.

PA3 94    Tunga Penetrans / Chigoe Flea / Jigger    
Native to Central and South America, but now also found sub-Saharan Africa; breeding females burrow into exposed skin on the feet and remain there for two weeks while developing eggs, during which time they swell dramatically, sometimes causing intense irritation; if the flea is left within the skin, dangerous complications can occur including secondary infections, loss of nails, and toe deformation.
