Abstract
A male Korean farmer, who had received excisional operation on subcutaneous
masses due to sparganosis, showed reappearance of subscutaneous masses at other sites.
He was given praziquantel orally at the dose of 75 mg/kg/day for 5 days and again after one
month. However, the masses did not regress and the patient complained of discomfort for
the next 4 months. Finally the masses were excised and 3 actively moving spargana were
recovered. In this case of human sparganosis with multiple lesions, praziquantel was not
effective.
