- A case of human anisakiasis involving terminal
ileum was reported. The lesion was incidentally
found in a 23~year old Korean male during
an operation for duodenal ulcer perforation. As
far as one could detect no symptoms directly
referable to the lesion were present.
Histopathologically, the lesion was characterized
by transmural necrotizing and granulomatous
inflammation with central cavitations.
One section disclosed a sectioned anisakid larval
worm, which was measured 208 X 118pm in
diameters and was characterized by thick cuticle,
thin hypodermis with Y-shaped lateral chords,
large oesophagus, and polymyarian, coelomyarian
The present case is the second human anisakiasis
reported in Korea.
