Abstract
A case of DiPhyllobothrium tatum infection
was recorded. A 50-year-old healthy Korean
male was infected with this tape worm and
treated with atabrine orally. An incomplete
strobila without scolex and neck parts was
collected. On the basis of morphological characteristics,
it was identified as D. tatum.
It is the most probable that the infection is
autochthonous, because of past history of the
patient the distribution of possible intermediate
hosts and commercial status of fisheries imports
in Korea.
This is the first record of DiPhyllobothrium
tatum infection in Korea which was verified
with the recovery of the adult worm.
