Abstract: The morphological differentiation of the infective larvae between human Ancylostoma duodenale and Necator americanus is of great significance for the epidemiological survey of hookworm diseases and human parasitology teaching. Understanding of features of the oral spear and transverse lines on the tunica vaginalis is able to accurately differentiate the infective larvae between these two human hookworms.

Key words: Ancylostoma duodenale; Necator americanus; Infective larva; Morphological feature

摘要: 人体十二指肠钩虫和美洲钩虫感染性幼虫的形态鉴别,对钩虫病流行病学调查及人体寄生虫学教学均具有实践意义。在实际工作中,掌握口矛(咽管矛)和鞘膜横纹的特征,就可以准确鉴别两种钩虫的感染性幼虫。
