Sparganosis in humans is caused by migrating larvae of the cestode Spirometra. Humans are considered the second intermediate host that are incidentally infected. Sparganosis usually infestates the subcutaneous tissues and visceral organs have rarely been reported to be involved. A case is herein reported however, a 67-year old female patient with sparganosis in the gastric wall and perigastric region, presented as a submucosal tumor upon gastrofiberscopy. The diagnosis was made after surgery by the pathologic findings determining a characteristic degenerated Sparganum and multiple tunnel-shape cavities surrounded by many inflammatory cells and necrotic materials.
