  • 3 Years Ago
Abstract: Taenia saginata is found in many areas worldwide, but is most common in areas where consumption of undercooked beef is high. The diagnosis is done by identifying eggs or proglottids in stool specimens, but egg and proglottid production can be sporadic, so repeated stool tests may be needed. In some cases with suspected small intestinal parasitosis, double-balloon endoscopy is advisable because it enables complete visualization of the small intestine. Here the authors showed a case with T. saginata detected in the small intestine of a 40-year-old woman who was admitted to the clinic with abdominal pain for nearly 4 years.
