Tinea saginata

 

This is helminthic cestode tape worm whose intermediate host is cattle. The adult worm lives in the small intestine of man and is release eggs which are swallowed by intermediate host such as the cattle. The embryos hatch and penetrate the intestinal wall to the blood stream from where they are carried to muscles, tongue, diaphragm and liver. The beef is then ingested by man and the cyst enters the gut from where the worms pass into the intestine and attach to the wall of the intestine where they develop into adult worms in 2-3 months.
