Angiostrongyliasis

Angiostrongyliasis is an infection with larvae of the worm of the genus Angiostrongylus; depending on the infecting species leads to intestinal symptoms or an eosinophil meningitis.

Angiostrongylus are rats parasites (rat lung worms). Retired larvae are of intermediate (snails and slugs) (can transmit hosts that are not necessary for the development of the parasite, but infections in humans) and paratenic or transport hosts added. To a human infection may result from the ingestion of raw or not cooked snails or slugs or transport hosts (certain crabs and freshwater shrimp); it is not clear whether the contamination of vegetables with larvae (z. B. in the mucus of snails and slugs that crawl over the food) can cause an infection.
