Caption: Light micrograph, tinted yellow, of the liver fluke Clonorchis sinensis, which infects millions of people in China, Korea & Japan. It can cause diarrhoea, abdominal pain & cirrhosis of the liver. The fluke's digestive system is the pair of intestinal tubes running from the oral sucker at the animal's front end (top) down the length of its body. The branched structures (bottom) are the hermaphroditic worm's testes. The red "fingers" at upper centre are the uterus. C. sinensis has 2 secondary hosts: freshwater snails & fish of the minnow & carp family. Humans are infected by eating raw fish. Magnification: x2 at 35mm size. (More information available on request). This picture is Figure 3.13 in MICROCOSMOS. The granular structures on either side of the uterus
