Caption: Male schistosome fluke. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an adult male schistosome fluke (Schistosoma mansoni), a cause of schistosomiasis in humans. This worm lives in the veins around the large intestine, anchoring itself in place on the blood vessel wall with several suckers (one seen at lower centre), and feeding on its host's blood cells. The many eggs produced by the female worm usually leave the body in the faeces, but can also form fibrous obstructions of tissues and vessels known as granulomas. Magnification: x95 at 6x7 cm size. x165 at 4x5"
