Head capsule of adult Ternidens deminutus.

Photo 1. Head capsule of adult Ternidens deminutus. In some areas such as East Africa and Rhodesia infection commonly occurs with a hookworm-like parasite of monkeys, Ternidens deminutus which infects also monkeys in Asia. The parasite is found at any level in the small and large intestine and normally infection is asymptomatic. (x60)
