Caption: Dog tapeworm. Light micrograph (LM) of the dog tapeworm, Echinococcus multilocularis. The tapeworm's head is at upper left. The large terminal section of the worm (lower right) contains eggs which are visible as brown spheres. During the worm's life-cycle, the worm attaches itself to the host dog's intestinal wall using its head. E. multilocularis infects dogs and cats. It has a larval stage which is excreted in the faeces, and forms invasive cysts in the tissue of intermediate hosts, such as rodents and humans. When this infected tissue is consumed by a dog, the larvae hatch into the adult tapeworm again. Magnification: x25 at 6x7cm size.
