Caption: Light micrograph of a hookworm egg undergoing the process of cellular division. Hookworm eggs are oval or ellipsoidal in shape with a thin shell. The eggs of Ancylostoma duodenale and Necator americanus cannot be distinguished morphologically. The movement of the larvae beneath the skin is traced by red wheals that cause great irritation. Hookworm infections are treated with diethylcarbamazine or thiabendazole; maggots may be surgically removed.
