Abstract
A human case of Diphyllobothrium yonagoense infection was found by morphological
study of a strobila recovered from a 65-year old man in March 1982. The patient,
a seaside villager of Wando-gun, Chollanam-do (Province), revealed diphyllobothriid eggs
(64-68 X 46-49 urn in size) in his feces, and discharged a tapeworm strobila, 3.2 m long,
after treatment with 40 mg/kg bithionol and purgation. The segments were characterized
morphologically by parallel uterine loops, large thick-walled seminal vesicle, and thickshelled
eggs with deep pits, which were compatible with Diphyllobothrium yonagoense
