Introduction to tapeworm infections

Tapeworm infections, also known as cestode infections, are caused by parasitic worms that live in the intestines of humans and animals. These flatworms can vary in size, ranging from a few millimeters to several meters long. Tapeworm infections can occur when a person ingests the eggs or larvae of these worms, often through contaminated food or water. Once inside the body, tapeworms can attach themselves to the intestinal wall and grow, potentially leading to various health issues.
