ID#:5205
Description:This enlargement shows hookworms, Ancylostoma caninum attached to the intestinal mucosa.
Barely visible larvae penetrate the skin (often through bare feet), are carried to the lungs, go through the respiratory tract to the mouth, are swallowed, and eventually reach the small intestine. This journey takes about a week.
