Abstract

We report two cases (a 36-year-old woman and 2-year-old girl) infected with in Turkey. was identified and distinguished from the morphologically identical parasites and by a nested polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of the small subunit ribosomal DNA gene.
