The main sources for human infection are suids and frogs 1. This view is sustained by the presence of mononuclear cells that it infiltrates and by the appearance of alara granulomatous tissue in various stages of maturation, which leads to muscle and subcutaneous fibroplasia.

Although data on the pathologic changes caused by Alaria spp. Open in a separate window. The sporocysts then produce cercariae. The reparatory nature of the lesions suggests that the inflammation is probably akata result of direct tissue damage rather than an immune reaction targeted toward the parasitic antigens.

The mesocercariae were located in the connective fibrous tissue of the perimysium or between the muscle fibers. Our zlaria provides a detailed description of the lesions, shown by microscopy, which suggests the pathogenic mechanisms.
