Abstract

Surgical repair of an inguinal hernia in a 19-year-old man in Honduras revealed massive numbers of small granulomata containing trematode eggs on the omentum and other peritoneal surfaces. The eggs resembled those of Travassos, 1942, a species found in the maxillary sinuses of the opossum, . Species of (syn. Fain and Vandepitte, 1957) have been reported in retroauricular cysts or abscesses in residents of West Africa and Southeast Asia.
