Abstract
A 46-year old male was admitted to Seoul National University Hospital with
the clinical complaints of fatigue, watery diarrhea and abdominal discomfort for 15 days,
Trematode infection especially metagonimiasis, was suspected because of his recent history
of consumption of raw sweetfish, the intermediate host of Metagonimus vokoqauiai. Repeated
fecal examination revealed no eggs. Serological test by enzyme-linked immunosorbent
assay (ELISA) exhibited positive antibody level for M. yokogawai antigen, The diagnosis
was confirmed by recovery of 110 adult specimens of M, yokogawai expelled after
chemotherapy with praziquantel. The present patient shows that serological diagnosis is
necessary in some cases of metagonimiasis.
