Lancet. ; Fasciolopsiasis, infection of humans and swine by the trematode Fasciolopsis buski, a parasitic worm. The adult worms, 2– cm (–3 inches) long, attach themselves to the tissues of the small intestine of the host by means of ventral suckers; the sites of attachment may later ulcerate and form abscesses.
