Outbreak News Interviews

Nov 15, 2017

Today on the podcast we'll look at the parasitic lung fluke, Paragonimus. Parasitology teacher and author, Rosemary Drisdelle joins me to discuss the life cycle, the geography of a couple of the species and how people contract this food borne trematode, or fluke.

In addition, we talk about disease and symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of this flatworm.

As always, Rosemary includes an interesting nugget about the parasite, like she does in every episode.
