    ABSTRACT: Pulmonary sparganosis mansoni is uncommon in general clinical practice, but prevalent in endemic foci. Pulmonary sparganosis mansoni shares some clinical and radiologic similarities that mimic other common pulmonary pathogens. Delayed diagnosis of pulmonary sparganosis mansoni can pose a significant hazard to the patient. Indeed, a history of ingesting uncooked stone cracks in endemic areas is strongly suggestive of the possibility of pulmonary sparganosis mansoni. We report a case of a 43-year-old male peasant infested with pulmonary sparganosis mansoni who had been misdiagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis.
