    The liver fluke is a flat worms. They live in and feed in the liver people, where it causes a lot of damage. The eggs of the fluke pass out in the faeces of infected people. Capable of moving along the blood circulation, they can occur also in bile ducts, gallbladder, and liver parenchyma. In these organs, they produce pathological lesions leading to parasitic diseases. They have complex life cycles requiring two or three different hosts, with free-living larval stages in water.

    The female blood fluke resides in the gynecophoral canal of male. Fig. Schistosoma: Male and female. Fasciola (Liver fluke) Digestive, endoparasite found in the bile duct of the liver of sheep & goat which serve as primary host & in larval stages in an intermediate (secondary) host called Limnea (snail). In primary host it causes liver rot. Liver flukes (Fasciola hepatica) are flat, leaf-shaped worms found in sheep, cattle, goats, and sometimes deer, elk, and other mammals that graze in wet or marshy the early s, a rapid spread of liver flukes in the U.S. from the West Coast and Rocky Mountain states toward the East and North caused disease in domestic livestock and significant losses for American cattle and sheep.

    To survive and reach the host snail, which must be within 24 to 30 hours as they have a short life span, the larvae need temperatures above 5°C with the optimum temperature being 15°C to 24°C. After five to eight weeks and several larval stages later, depending on the temperature, minute tadpole-like larvae emerge from the snail. These.   Inside a human host, a cercaria typically takes three to four months to mature into an adult liver fluke, at which time it will proceed to the liver to lay its eggs. Treatment A number of drugs designed to kill liver flukes in various species can be found on the market.

Habits and Habitat of Liver Flukes: F. hepatica Linnaeus (), is an endoparasite which completes its life cycle in two hosts. Adult F hepatica is known as the sheep liver fluke because it is found attached to the inner wall of bile ducts and in the liver of sheep, cow etc., the definitive hosts.

Fasciola hepatica occurs in the liver of a definitive host and its lifecycle is indirect. Definitive hosts of the fluke are cattle, sheep, and buffaloes. Wild ruminants and other mammals, including humans, can act as definitive hosts as well. The life cycle of F. hepatica goes through the intermediate host and several environmental larval : Fasciolidae.

Liver fluke can infect all grazing animals (and man) but mainly affects sheep and cattle. It is most pathogenic in sheep. Compared to other helminths, the lifecycle is complex and involves an intermediate host, the mud snail Galba (Lymnaea) truncatula and several free-living stages.

The role of the snail, which prefers muddy, slightly acidic. There is no respiratory organs in the liver fluke. The bile of its host is saturated with oxygen which is absorbed by the general body surface. CO 2 is released by exosmosis through the cuticle. There is no evidence to believe that the liver fluke is anaerobic because a reduced oxygen tension leads to the death of the parasite.

Liver fluke disease can be acute, sub-acute or chronic, depending on the size of the infection and how quickly it is acquired. Disease is due to haemorrhage and tissue damage from immature fluke migrating through the liver, from damage to the bile ducts, and blood loss due to the feeding adult fluke.

The life cycle of ca is quite complex and requires an intermediate host. The intermediate host is the mud snail. The mud snail is an intermediate host as the parasite only undergoes developmental processes while in this host, whereas in the definitive host (cattle, sheep etc) the parasite sexually reproduces.

Adult flukes develop into the. FASCIOLA LIFE CYCLE IN SHEEP. The life cycle of Fasciola hepatica is complex and it is completed in two different hosts as it is a digenetic parasite.

The primary host is sheep in which the adult liver flukes live. Whereas the intermediate or secondary host is a snail in which all the larval stages are developed. The identification of larval stages in the liver parenchyma or adults in the bile ducts (Figure 1) or gall bladder provide evidence of current infection.

The presence of fibrosis and calcification of the bile ducts (Figure 2) can also indicate previous infection, even in the absence of larval or adult fluke being present. First intermediate host of liver flukes, and infecting stages for fish and mammals.

Summary Liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica)is a parasite of the liver. Liver flukes utilise a definitive host (cattle or sheep) and an intermediate host (water snails) in their life cycle.

In the infected snail, the young parasite goes through two stages – the sporocyst (an elongated sac) and the redia (a larval form with an oral sucker) – before emerging as a cercaria.

The Common Liver Fluke: Fasciola hepatica L. emphasizes the biological, physiological, pathological, and ecology and control of the common liver fluke. The book provides a thorough review of the life of the animal, from its bodily structure to where it thrives.

Liver fluke has a complex life cycle that requires a definitive host (usually sheep or cattle), specific fresh water snails and permanent water to maintain the snails.

One species of parasitic wasp, hymenoepimecis argyraphaga, glues its egg onto a host spider, Plesiometa argyra, after paralyzing it with venom. After the egg hatches, the larva bores holes into the spider’s abdomen and modifies the spider’s structure to create a saddle.

Liver fluke is the common name of a parasitic group of parasitic organisms under the phylum flatworms. They are gradually parasites of the liver of different mammals, including humans.

Capable of moving one place to another by along the blood circ.establishment of liver fluke are a suitable snail (the intermediate host) and an environment that suits the fluke eggs, the snails and the larval fluke – such as springs, slow-moving streams with marshy banks, irrigation channels and seepages.
