This photomicrograph revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology exhibited by an adult dog tapeworm, Echinococcus granulosus, which had been found in a canine. E. granulosus causes what is known as cystic echinococcosis, in dogs and other canids. Note the worm’s head is on the left, exhibiting its scolex, with its hook-rimmed rostellum.
