TREMATODES OF THE NASAL FOSSAE

 

 

Trematodes of the nasal fossae or sinuses

 

ORCHIPEDIDAE

Orchipedumisostoma (Rudolphi, 1819)

TROGLOTREMATIDAE

Troglotrema mustelae Wallace, 1932

 

Some trematodes normally live as adults in the nasal sinuses of their hosts. There is every reason to believe that cats are capable of becoming infected with these trematodes if they eat an infected intermediate hosts. However, there are no reports of this having occurred naturally.
