Table 86 1 gives the names applied to various larval helminths knowledge of the different stages in relation to their growth and development is the basis for understanding the epidemiology and pathogenesis of helminth diseases as well as for the diagnosis and treatment of patients harboring these parasites. The helminths or parasitic worms correspond to three types and nematode the identification of the parasite is fundamental for the correct diagnosis of the parasitosis this experiment focuses on the identification of parasitic helminths by microscopic and macroscopic observation. The other two groups are the nematodes or roundworms nematoda and the acanthocephalans or thorny headed worms acanthocephala many of these parasites have been documented as causes of morbidity and mortality in wild birds and mammals 12 most helminths have complex life cycles involving more than one host 12 for instance trematodes . Occasionally abnormal forms of parasitic helminth eggs are detected during routine diagnostics this finding can prove problematic in diagnosis because morphologic analysis based on tightly defined measurements is the primary method used to identify the infecting species and molecular confirmation of species is not always feasible we describe instances of malformed nematode eggs primarily
