Causal Agents: The cestodes (tapeworms) Taenia saginata (beef tapeworm) and T. solium (pork tapeworm).Taenia solium eggs can also cause cysticercosis.. Life Cycle: Taeniasis is the infection of humans with the adult tapeworm of Taenia saginata or Taenia solium.Humans are the only definitive hosts for T. saginata and T. solium.Eggs or gravid proglottids are passed with feces ; the eggs can ...

Taenia solium is the so-called pork tapeworm belonging to cyclophyllid cestodes in the family Taeniidae.It is an intestinal mainly zoonotic parasite found throughout the world, and is most prevalent in countries where pork is eaten, and in its more dangerous secondary form wherever faecally contaminated water is drunk, having been infected by primary, human hosts.

LIFE CYCLE []. The life cycle of T. solium is represented graphically below.It consists of six main steps: Figure courtesy of the CDC's Division of Parasitic Diseases. []STEP 1. Infected humans (definitive host) excrete the eggs or gravid proglottids in their feces, passing the parasite from the gastrointestinal tract onto nearby vegetation.

Taenia solium, the pork tapeworm of man, as adult lives in the intestine of man leading an endoparasitic life. Its life history is completed in two hosts, i.e., digenetic; man being the primary host and pig as secondary host.

Taenia solium completes its life cycle in two different vertebrate hosts , man and pig. Man is considered to be the definitive host and the pig is considered as the intermediate host. The life cycle of taenia solium includes 1. Fertilization, 2. The human phase, 3. The pig phase. 1.FERTILIZATION: 1. Fertilization occurs in the ootype. 2.

Taenia solium infection (taeniasis) is an intestinal infection with adult tapeworms that follows ingestion of contaminated pork. Cysticercosis is infection with larvae of T. solium, which develops after ingestion of ova excreted in human feces. Adult worms may cause mild GI symptoms or passage of a motile segment in the stool.

Life History of Taenia Solium: Hexacanth embryo or onchosphere (Fig.23): (a) The body of Taenia Solium is rounded and enclosed in two membranes. (b) Six curved chitinoid hooks are present at one end. 5. The embryos bore the wall of the gut of the host with the hooks and reach the voluntary muscles where the hooks are lost.

Life Cycle of Taenia species. Infection with Taenia spp.occurs after ingestion of raw or undercooked beef (T.saginata) or pork (T.solium) contaminated by a cysticercus larva, a type of larva that consists of a scolex surrounded by a thin – walled bladder-like cyst and filled with fluid.The attachment of the Scolex to the intestinal mucosa takes place after the Larvae develop in the small ...

Taenia solium infection has been recognized since biblical times and the parasite life cycle has been identified by the 1850s. Although T. solium and T. saginata are very similar, the extraintestinal T. solium infection is far more dangerous and serious.
