Paragonimiasis
Pathology
  • Pulmonary location: mechanic damage and tissue lesions due to toxic metabolites or immunological reactions (eosinophilic inflammatory responses). When cysts burst, eggs are expectorated and bronchopneumonia can result. Cysts can become fibroid and calcified.
  • Extrapulmonary localisation is not uncommon. Cysts or abscesses can be found in the liver, brain, subcutis, intestinal wall and other sites
