Clonorchis sinensis, or the liver fluke, is a parasitic trematode that exists as eggs in freshwater, hatches into its first intermediate form in snails, encysts under the scales of freshwater fish, and is released into the small intestine of individuals who ingest the fish. Once the worm excysts in the intestine, it can travel to the liver, where it feeds on bile and and releases eggs through the biliary duct. Chronic inflammation of the biliary duct as a result of C. sinensis infection
