F. hepatica and S. mansoni

This is an example where a patient has been infected with two termatodes. The lower left egg is caused by a fluke that lives in the liver and produces eggs, while the egg in the upper right is produced by a mated pair of termatodes that live in the tissue surrounding the GI tract.
