on the Leishman stained smears were visible under lower magnification, whereas in the Pap and HE stained smears it was difficult to locate the hooklets
under lower magnification.
The species name saginata is derived from the Latin sania meaning fattened animal (cattle) and the species name solium is Latin for a throne, which describes the ring of hooklets
around the scolex of the worm.
Ental process of the inner capsular lobe (sperm plug sensu Sissom & Stockwell 1991) with "crown" of 15 spines or hooklets
Cytological smear prepared from the sediments (hydatid sands) of cystic fluid showed many scolices, brood capsules and detached hooklets
Morphological variation and abnormality of cephalic hooklets
of Gnathostoma spinigerum hepatic stage larvae from laboratory infected mice.
All Gnathostoma sp share the same morphologic characteristics, including an anterior head bulb with cephalic hooklets
and a body covered in cuticular spines.
Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) revealed the presence of cystic fluid which on magnification showed hooklets
and the protoscolices of the hydatid disease (Fig.
The authors extensively described the protoscolices and the amount and shape of the rostellar hooklets
Histopathologic examination of the cyst revealed the characteristic germinal membrane of an Echinococcus granulosus (dog tapeworm) cyst, with multiple polypoid daughter embryos containing inverted scolices with hooklets
The adult worm lives in the proximal small bowel of the definitive host, attached by hooklets
to the mucosa.
