occasional parasitic infections of man in papua new guinea and irian jaya (new guinea).most parasites of man in new guinea are cosmopolitan species, widely distributed and highly prevalent in the island. reports of other parasite infections are reviewed. this impoverished fauna includes anthroponotic species normally occurring at low prevalences, e.g. isospora belli, dientamoeba fragilis, trichomonas hominis and a few zoonotic forms with pigs as reservoir hosts, notably balantidium coli and entamoeba polecki. other zoonoses are very few and extremely rare. this may be due to the r ...19892690759
enterobius gregorii hugot 1983; first report in the u.k. 19873689028
[on the biology of the pinworm.]pinworm enterobius spp. has probably been an endemic parasite in humans in iceland since the colonization of the country more than 1100 years ago. a recent survey on pinworm infections in children in playschools indicated that the pinworm is quite common. the results are published in another article in this issue. in this contribution general knowledge on the biology of the parasite (taxonomy, morphology, distribution, life-cycle, transmission, diagnosis and treatment) is reviewed. recently, doz ...199819667431
enterobius gregorii--reality or fiction?authors present findings based on the actual epidemiologic situation of incidence of e. vermicularis (linnaeus, 1758) which is till now the uniquely diagnosed parasite of enterobius species in human population in slovak republic. they compared methods used in our laboratories for detection of propagation stages of e. vermicularis ova with methods used in other laboratories, which detect various propagation stages directly in stool. the authors found differences in detection and identification of ...200312940699
growth of enterobius vermicularis in a chimpanzee after anthelmintic treatment.the growth of enterobius vermicularis in a chimpanzee was investigated by observing worms discharged in feces after administration of pyrantel pamoate. just after the final molting, immature adult male pinworms developed to a fully mature stage in 2 wk, after passing through a stage corresponding to the so-called enterobius gregorii, which was surmised to be a younger adult form of e. vermicularis. the frequency distribution of body length forms 2 peaks in both male and female pinworms, with a d ...200312880239
[enterobius gregorii hugot, 1983: its presence in man in italy and in the central african republic].the presence of e. gregorii, a species recently identified by hugot in france in man, is signaled by the authors in italy and in the central african republic. the diagnosis was based on the differential morphological characters reported by hugot and tourte-schaefer in 1985.19892626278
is enterobius gregorii hugot, 1983 (nematoda: oxyuridae) a distinct species?a series of 849 male pinworms collected from a 64-yr-old japanese male was examined. they were classified by the spicule morphology into 87 enterobius vermicularis (linnaeus, 1758), 754 enterobius gregorii hugot, 1983, and 6 immature adults, whereas 2 worms lacked spicules. the worm length of e. vermicularis was significantly larger than e. gregorii. the shape and length of the distal tubular portion of the spicule were identical in these forms, whereas the basal portion was different. the immat ...19989488350
[enterobius gregorii (oxyuridae, nematoda), a new human parasite].a review of the oxyurids parasites of primates shows that most of the species described in the malagasy lemurs and in the old world monkeys are not single species, but couples of sister-species. the sister-species of each couple may be differentiated sometimes only by the characteristics of male spicule (less evoluated species), sometimes by other characteristics (cephalic structures, length of oesophagus, etc., in more evoluated species). in the first instance only males can be identified, in t ...19836416131
[enterobius gregorii hugot, 1983 recovered from school children in kangwon-do, korea].hugot (1983), hugot and tourte-schaefer (1985) reported that nematodes of the genus enterobius causing human enterobiasis might be classified into two different species on the basis of the size and shape of spicule in male worms. e. gregorii hugot, 1983 has significantly shorter spicules in males than those in e. vermicularis. a total of 194 male enterobius were collected from 17 schoolchildren by anthelmintics at wonju, kangwon-do. the sizes of spicules and morphologies were comparatively obser ...19921420028
