Currently, there is an opisthorchiasis morbidity rate in West Kazakhstan Region; opisthorchiasis is a parasitic natural-focal disease characterized by hepatobiliary system affect.
Opisthorchiasis (caused by opisthorchis felineus) is a widespread parasitic disease of humans and animals, the causative agent of which develops at different stages of ontogenesis both in a body of different hosts and in the environment (water biocenosis).

Since more and more travelers visited endemic countries, an accurate differential diagnostic method for human clonorchiasis and opisthorchiasis should be developed [1, 2].

Opisthorchiasis was suspected because of the patient's travel history and report of eating carpaccio (Italian dish made with raw fish/meat) near Lake Bolsena (8).
To confirm the diagnosis of opisthorchiasis, we obtained another fecal sample 1 month later, and low numbers of Opisthorchis eggs were seen by microscopy.

, cryptosporidiosis, and giardiasis.
