A Little Historical Background
I thought you might be interested in learning some of my historical background. Clonorchis sinensis is the most important of the liver flukes that infect humans. The fluke is found throughout East Asia and is chiefly responsible for the many patients with cholangiohepatitis seen in the Orient. C. sinensis was first described by McConnell in 1875 in the bile ducts of a Chinese carpenter in Calcutta, but the earliest historical record of clonorchiasis dates back to an ancient corpse buried in 278 B.C. in the West Han Dynasty in China.
