Abstract: The first case of Gnathostoma doloresi infection in a human was found in Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan. A whole length of the parasite was dissected out from biopsied skin and was identified as the third-stage larva of G. doloresi based on the morphological characteristics of the hooklets of the head bulb and also on the number of nuclei in the intestinal epithelial cells of the parasite.
