BELTRAN F, María; TANTALEAN V, Manuel; MEZA V, Hugo  and  LOZANO, María. Fasciolosis errática. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2004, vol.21, n.4, pp.276-279. ISSN 1726-4634.

This is a case report of a 19 year old patient from Chupaca, Junin, in central Peruvian highlands, who presented with an erythematous, indurated, and pruriginous papule in the right flank, which evolved to a painful vesicle. From this latter lesion, a flattened worm was excised, which was identified as Fasciola hepatica. The patient also had eosinophilia, double diffusion test was reported as positive, and no Fasciola eggs were found in feces. Photographs of the parasite are shown, and we present a brief summary of the infection.

Keywords : Fasciola hepatica; Case Report; Peru.
