The pork tapeworm Taenia solium
This boy has a tapeworm growing inside him.
The pork tapeworm lives inside the small intestine.It eats our food and can grow up to 3 metres long.
How does it spread? Tapeworm segments come out with the faeces releasing thousands of eggs into the environment.
You can see the tapeworm segments in the faeces.
But the tapeworm eggs are too small to see.They spread easily and contaminate the soil and water supply.
Worm eggs get onto our hands, food and drinking water.The eggs spread easily Worm eggs get onto our hands, food and drinking water.
Swallowing tapeworm eggs is dangerous.Tapeworm eggs grow into cysts in the brain, eyes and muscles causing epilepsy (fits), blindness, paralysis, severe headaches, insanity and even death.
Brain damage caused by tapeworm cysts.
Pigs get infected Free-range pigs get infected by eating human faeces containing tapeworm eggs.
Pork infected with cysts.The eggs grow into cysts and can be found in infected meat.
People get tapeworms from eating cysts in undercooked meat.

IX. Selected Diseases caused by Multicellular Animal Parasites
Felicia Henderson. BACKGROUND Tapeworms are flat segmented worms that live in the intestines of some animals. Animals can become infected with these parasites.
eg. Taenia ovis worm in gut of final host (dog) egg packet voided
Tapeworms (Cestodes). DISEASE TRANSMISSION OF INFECTION LOCATION OF ADULT IN HUMANS LOCATION OF LARVA IN HUMANS CLINICAL PICTURE LAB. DIAGNOSIS Taenia.
PHYLUM NEMATODA roundworms.

Parasites: Fish Tapeworm Pork Tapeworm. Fish Tapeworm Scientific name is: Diphyllobothrium latum (just write D. latum, no one in science writes that whole.
Flatworms Phylum Platyhelminth.

Worms What’s Eating You for Dinner ?
Class Cestoidea Taenia solium,Taenia saginata. Class Cestoidea, classification A- Intestinal cestode :live in the lumen of intestine:eg Taenia saginata.
Flatworm Characteristics --Flat bodies (gases move by diffusion) --bilateral symmetry --gastrovascular cavity --some flatworms are parasitic, some are.
Parasitism Parasites are organisms that live in or on another organism i.e. the “host”. What do parasites gain?
Phylum: Nematoda Phylum: Nematoda.
Phylum Nematoda. Basic Facts Name meaning: round worm Invertebrate Bilateral symmetry Body plan: Slender, unsegmented worms with tapering ends Digestive.
Worms Flatworms Bilateral symmetry No coelum Has organs & systems 3 body layers –Ectoderm –Mesoderm –Endoderm Gasses pass in/out by diffusion Anterior.
Intestinal Helminths DR MONA BADR. CLASSIFICATION OF PARASITES PROTOZOAHELMINTHS Unicellular Single cell for all functions Multicellular Specialized cells.
Fluke Planarian Tapeworm’s sucker and hooks
Vocabulary Pseudocoelom = a body between the mesoderrn and the endoderm Cuticle = thick, tough, outer covering that protects the worm.
Phylum: Platyhelminthes “flatworms” Examples: tapeworms, flukes, planarians.

Parasitology (Trematodes & Cestodes) Study Objectives From the selected trematode and cestode parasites that follow, recall the basic physiology and morphology,
Echinoderms Echinoderms have a hard endoskeleton covered by bumpy or spiny epidermis; They have radial symmetry, a mouth, stomach, and intestines. They.

Flatworms Phylum: Platyhelminthes 3 Germ layers Bilateral symmetry Acoelomates: No body cavity Results in thin, flat bodies Low surface area:volume.
Roundworms. Phylum Nematoda 1.Nematode: “round” 2.Live in most envir. 3.Free-living or parasitic 4.Smaller than flatworms, taper at both ends 5.Thick.

PARASITES. WHAT ARE PARASITES? Parasites are living things that use other living things - like your body - for food (nourishment) and a place to live.
