Clonorchiasis is infection with the liver fluke Clonorchis sinensis. Infection is usually acquired by eating undercooked freshwater fish. Symptoms include fever, chills, epigastric pain, tender hepatomegaly, diarrhea, and mild jaundice. Diagnosis is by identifying eggs in the feces or duodenal contents Liver infected with Clonorchis sinensis causing cholangiocarcinoma. C. sinensis and Opisthorchis viverrini are associated with a 5 to 15 times increased risk of cholangiocarcinoma. This is a major public health issue in some areas such as north-east Thailand where cholangiocarcinoma is one of the leading causes of death Clonorchis sinensis, the Chinese liver fluke, is a liver fluke belonging to the class Trematoda, phylum Platyhelminthes. It infects fish-eating mammals, including humans. In humans, it infects the common bile duct and gall bladder, feeding on bile.
