Echinostomes: systematics and life cycles
This chapter provides a review of the most significant literature in the last decade on the systematics and biology of echinostomes and echinOSTome-like digeneans and covers various aspects of the different stages of these organisms.

Numerous echinostome trematodes are found in the intestines of birds and mammals throughout the world, and echinostomiasis in humans has been attributed to approximately 16 different species. In
A Case of Echinostoma cinetorchis (Trematoda: Echinostomatidae) Infection Diagnosed by Colonoscopy
This is the first case of endoscopy-diagnosed E. cinetorchis infection in Korea and the infection source of this case seems to be the raw frogs eaten 2 months ago.
Echinostomes in humans
Clinical importance of each echinostome species, as well as mucosal defense mechanisms of different hosts, is yet poorly understood and epidemiological surveys and detection of human infections are required.
The Systematics of the Echinostomes
The main distinguishing feature of the family Echinostomatidae is the presence of a circumoral head collar armed with one or two ventrally interrupted crowns of large spines.


Clinical and pathological effects of Echinostoma revolutum (Digenea: Echinostomatidae) in the golden hamster, Mesocricetus auratus
Examination of tissues of infected animals showed wide individual variations related to the intensity of infection and histopathological responses of hamsters to the parasite showed erosion of intestinal villi with lymphocytic infiltration being the primary response.
Infectivity of Echinostoma revolutum miracidia for laboratory-raised pulmonate snails.
With respect to the first intermediate host, Echinostoma revolutum is considered to be less specific than most trematodes. In his studies on that species, Beaver (1937, Illinois Biological Monographs
Sterols of Echinostoma revolutum (Trematoda) adults.
The response of M. edulis infected with adult P. maculatus apparently did not involve encapsulations of parasites with concomitant infiltrations of leukocytes through thin capsule walls, as reported by Tripp and Turner (1978).
The life history of Echinostoma paraensei sp. n. (Trematoda: Echinostomatidae).
The life history of Echinostoma paraensei, a new Brazilian species with 37 collar spines, has been completed experimentally and various echinostome species naturally transmitted by Biomphalaria glabrata (Say) in Brazil are being sought and evaluated to determine their efficiency in destroying Schistosoma mansoni Sambon.
Parasites in Bulinus senegalensis (Mollusca: Planorbidae)and their detection
SUMMARY Isoelectric focusing studies on enzyme variation between populations of the snail Bulinus senegalensis revealed that parasitic infections in the snails contributed additional bands of enzyme
The effects of crowding on adults of Echinostoma revolutum (Digenea: Echinostomatidae) in experimentally infected golden hamsters, Mesocricetus auratus.
All 30 female golden hamsters feeding metacercarial cysts of Echinostoma revolutum were infected 7-35 days postexposure, and worms in A, B, and C were significantly less than that of A or B at 2, 4, and 5 wk postinfection.
Life cycle of a new echinostome from Egypt, Echinostoma liei sp.nov. (Trematoda: Echinostomatidae)
A 37-spined Egyptian echinostome, Echinostoma liei sp.nov., is described in adult and larval stages. The parasite develops readily in the laboratory in chicks and ducklings, hamsters and rats. Its
Studies on intestinal trematodes in Korea: XVII. Development of egg lying capacity of Echinostoma hortense in albino rats and human experimental infection.
The results show that human is as susceptible as the rats to E. hortense infection and the amount of egg production in the rats is greatly affected by the age of worms.
