Is this parasite the same as Dioctophyma renale? While doing some research, I looked up "kidney worm" and found both results. While the two articles approach it from different perspectives (this one from a medical standpoint, and the other from a veterinary one), they seem to be talking about the same parasite. The same question was asked over on Talk:Dioctophyma renale. Someone in the know may wish to merge these articles. Crysm (talk) 01:37, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
