Ultrastructural features of the tegument of adult Cynodiplostomum azimi (Trematoda:Digenea) in experimentally infected albino rats.

The ultrastructure of the tegument of adult Cynodiplostomum azimi and the lesions caused by the worm at this host parasite interface in albino rats are described. The tegument consists of a syncytial distal cytoplasm (approx. 2.01-3.1 microns in thickness), bounded by an outer apical plasma membrane and an inner basal trilaminated lamina. The subtegumental… CONTINUE READING
