Description:Under a magnification of 500x, this photomicrograph of an unstained mounted formalin-preserved fecal sample revealed the presence of an egg of the giant intestinal fluke, Fasciolopsis buski.
Eggs of Fasciolopsis buski are broadly ellipsoidal, operculated and measure 130-150 µm long by 60-90 µm wide. The eggs are unembryonated when passed in feces.
