Medical Definition of Sparganosis

1. Infection of animals, including fish and man, with a developmental stage of diphyllobothrium. This stage has recently been referred to as a plerocercoid but the name sparganum has persisted. Therefore, infection of fish or other animals with the plerocercoid larvae is sparganosis. Fish-eating mammals, including man, are the final hosts. (12 Dec 1998)
