Abstract

Summary

Bithionol administered orally in a single dose of 50 to 66 mg/kg body weight to eight patients with and eight with infections caused the expulsion of long strobilae in all cases. Although the scolex was found in only four cases (50%) of and five cases (62.5%) of infections, stool examinations over follow-up periods of 6 to 41 months showed no evidence of remaining infection. No serious side reactions to the bithionol were seen. Nausea, vomiting, and slight epigastric pain were each noted in one instance.
