This study was designed to define the precise anatomical location ofStrongyloides ratti in the intestinal mucosa of the mouse. Light microscopy showed adult worms in vacuoles in close relationship with the columnar epithelium. Serial sections indicated that the adults wound their way circuitously through the mucosa, usually close to the crypts. Portions of worms were sometimes seen in the intestinal lumen. Electron microscopy demonstrated that adult worms were situated between the epithelial… CONTINUE READING
