Two cases of paragonimiasis were identified within the hill-tribe population living on the Thai-Laotian border of Nan Province, northern Thailand, where information on Paragonimus was then still limited. The patients were in the habit of eating improperly cooked crabs and freshwater prawns. A survey for natural intermediate hosts to complete the life cycle was in progress at that time, and the detection of paragonimiasis cases indicated that there was persistence of paragonimiasis in the endemic area of Nan Province.
