Abstract

The purpose of the present study is to demonstrate the distribution of carbonic anhydrase pattern in the various termatodes (Fasciola gigantica, Paramphistoma orthocoelium, Paragonimus westermani) by means of Kurada staining method, and to correlate these findings with the histochemical data and harboring location.

The results are summarized as follows:

1. In Fasciloa gigantica, carbonic anhydrase activity was positive in the vitelline gland cells and eggs in the uterus.

2. In Paramphistoma orthocoelium, carbonic anhydrase activity was positive in the vitelline gland cells and eggs in the uterus.

3. In Paragonimus westermani, carbonic anhydrase activity was positive in intestinal mucous membrane, vitelline gland cells and eggs.
