Summaries for Diphyllobothriasis

About this section
CDC:2 Diphyllobothrium latum and related species (the fish or broad tapeworm), the largest tapeworms that can infect people, can grow up to 30 feet long. While most infections are asymptomatic, complications include intestinal obstruction and gall bladder disease caused by migration of proglottids. Diagnosis is made by identification of eggs or segments of the tapeworm in a stool sample with a microscope. Safe and effective medications are available to treat Diphyllobothrium. Infections are acquired by eating raw or undercooked fish, usually from the Northern Hemisphere (Europe, newly independent states of the Former Soviet Union, North America, Asia), but cases have also been reported in Uganda and Chile. Fish infected with Diphyllobothrium larvae may be transported to and consumed in any area of the world. Adequately freezing or cooking fish will kill the parasite.

MalaCards based summary: Diphyllobothriasis, also known as infection by bothriocephalus, is related to bothriocephalosis and sparganosis. An important gene associated with Diphyllobothriasis is MT-TS2 (Mitochondrially Encoded TRNA Serine 2 (AGU/C)), and among its related pathways is Gastric acid production.

Disease Ontology:11 A parasitic helminthiasis infectious disease that involves parasitic infection caused by Diphyllobothrium latum through the consumption of raw or undercooked fish. The symptoms include abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss and vitamin B12 deficiency with pernicious anemia.
