There have been seven cases of human infection by nymphs of Linguatula serrata reported from the United States. Only three of these, however, are proven to be autochthonous. We report a rare case of hepatic granuloma due to a nymph of L. serrata in a woman from Michigan. She had never left the continental United States.
