1F76.Y/B68 Other specified taeniasis



Other specified taeniasis is a parasitic infection caused by the tapeworms Taenia solium and Taenia saginata. It is spread through the consumption of raw or undercooked pork, beef, or fish.


Diagnosis of other specified taeniasis is done by detecting the eggs of the tapeworm in the stool sample. Blood tests may also be done to detect antibodies against the tapeworms.

Differential diagnosis

Other specified taeniasis must be differentiated from other intestinal infections such as giardiasis, amebiasis, and cysticercosis.


Treatment for other specified taeniasis is done with anthelmintic medications such as praziquantel, albendazole, and niclosamide.


The prognosis for other specified taeniasis is generally good. With treatment, the infection can be cured and there are usually no long-term complications.
