Caption: Figure 1: (a) Photomicrograph is showing hooklet
The lower end of the posterior border of the medial plate appears to be con- tinued as a slender, curved or hook-like process termed as pterygoid hamulus (hamular process, pterygoideus hamulus, pterygoid hooklet
To obtain cephalic bulb hooklet
counts, we placed cephalic bulbs in a 20% ethanol, 2% glycerin solution in which bulbs were severed and oriented in an en face position in a drop of the same medium and placed under a coverslip.

on fine needle aspiration cytology--a case report," Case Reports in Infectious Diseases, vol.
The small hook-like organ of attachment present on the rostellum of the tapeworm scolex.
There are scolices and hooklets
within the cyst lumen.
On microscopy, numerous hooklets
and scoleces were found.
One of these is a phenomenon we call "hooklets
." Figure 6 shows a zoomed-in view of an 11, showing that there is a hook at the bottom of the first "1" that heads off in the direction of the beginning of the next stroke.
Adult worms live in proximal small bowel of definitive host, attached by hooklets
If removed, the cyst will consist of 3 layers (innermost germinal layer, intermediate laminated membrane, and outer fibrous layer) and contain protoscolices (attached or separated) with a double row of refractile, birefringent, acid-fast hooklets
22 to 40 [micro]m in size and 4 round suckers that comprise the "hydatid sand." Finally, in a young patient with splenic lymphangioma, the diagnostic evaluation should be extended to include extrasplenic organs because it has been observed that in younger patients the likelihood of multiorgan involvement is greater.
