Description: The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine’s Department of Pathology has compiled a series of case studies to help both students and instructors. In this clinical microbiology case, an eyeworm (Thelazia californiensis) specimen from a patient is examined. Images of the specimen are presented along with information about eyeworm biology and infestation in animals and humans. A list of references, which students could use to get more background information, is also included at the end of the case study. It is also a helpful site for educators to use to introduce or test student knowledge of clinical microbiology.
