Fasciola hepatica, also known as the common liver fluke or sheep liver fluke, is a parasitic trematode of the class Trematoda, phylum Platyhelminthes. It infects the livers of various mammals, including humans. The disease caused by the fluke is called fasciolosis or fascioliasis, which is a type of helminthiasis and has been classified as a neglected tropical disease. Fasciolosis is currently classified as a plant/food-borne trematode infection, often acquired through eating the parasite metacercariae encysted on plants Morphology and anatomy Fasciola hepatica is one of the largest flukes of the world, reaching a length of 30 mm and a width of 13 mm (Fasciola gigantica, on the other hand, is even bigger and can reach up to 75 mm).

It is leaf-shaped, pointed at the back (posteriorly) and wide in the front (anteriorly). The oral sucker is small but powerful and is located at the end of a cone-shape projection at the anterior end. The acetabulum is a larger sucker than the oral sucker and is located at the anterior end.

Treatment: The two chemicals used are triclabendazole and bithionol. Ivermectin, which is widely used for many helminthic parasites, has low effectivity against F. Hepatica, as does praziquantel. Diagnosis finding yellow-brown eggs in the stool An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test is the diagnostic test of choice Proteases secreted by F. Hepatica have been used experimentally in immunizing antigens Thank you for watching. Please subscribe the channel fore more update. Have a nice day!.
