Sparganosis is a parasitic zoonosis caused by the plerocercoid, i.e. infective larva (sparganum) of pseudophyllidean tapeworms belonging to the genus Spirometra. Human infections with spargana are classified into two forms, non-proliferative sparganosis and proliferative sparganosis. Non-proliferative sparganosis is endemic mainly in East and Southeast Asia (China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Thailand) and is caused by S. erinaceieuropaei (S. mansoni) in the Old World and S. mansonoides in the New World. Proliferative sparganosis is caused by the more pathogenic and disseminating Sparganum proliferum and is only sporadically reported from Asia (Japan, Taiwan, Thailand) and very rarely from the New World (Paraguay, Venezuela, United States) This article is protected by copyright.
