Ectopic Paragonimiasis in Omentum and Prepatellar Bursa
Two cases of ectopic Paragonimiasis together with a brief review of literature are presented. The one, 41-year-old Korean male patient was admitted to Christian Hospital Kwangju, beccause of periumbilival pain and palpable mass for 2days. The cut surface of surgical excision mass reveals variable sized cystic spaces with focal necrosis. The histological findings reveal chronic granulomatous inflammation with prominent fibrosis and many thick-shelled eggs of Paragonimus westermani. The skin test for P.W. was positive. The other case, 23-year-old Korean female was visited to local clinic, due to freely movable mass on the prepatellar area. Surgical excision mass reveals two fragments of grayish white calcified soft tissue. Histologically, many calcified eggs of P.W. are observed.
