Summary of "Echinococcus multilocularis: First European haplotype identified in the United States: An emerging disease?"

Echinococcus multilocularis is one of the most severe and lethal parasitic diseases of humans most often reported in Europe and Asia. Only one previous case has been documented in the contiguous United States from Minnesota in 1977. European haplotypes have been identified in carnivores and domestic dogs as well as recently in patients in Western and Central Canada.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Liver disease caused by infections with parasitic tapeworms of the genus ECHINOCOCCUS, such as Echinococcus granulosus or Echinococcus multilocularis. Ingested Echinococcus ova burrow into the intestinal mucosa. The larval migration to the liver via the PORTAL VEIN leads to watery vesicles (HYDATID CYST).
