(Visceral or ocular larva migrans)

Toxocariasis is a human infection with a nematode larva, which normally infects animals. The symptoms consist of fever, anorexia, hepatosplenomegaly, rash, pneumonitis, asthma, or blurred vision. The diagnosis is made by enzyme immunoassay. The treatment is carried out with albendazole or mebendazole. Corticosteroids can be added for severe symptoms or eye involvement.

Pathophysiology The eggs of Toxocara canis, T. cati and other animal Askaridenw├╝rmern mature in the soil and infect dogs, cats and other animals. People can accidentally eggs, absorb from the soil contaminated by stool from infected animals or infected by eating infected carriers hosts (eg. As rabbits). The eggs hatch in the human intestine. The larvae penetrate the intestinal wall and can migrate through the liver, lungs, central nervous system, eyes and other tissues. Due focal eosinophilic granulomatous reactions to the migrating larvae leads to tissue damage. The larvae can start their development cycle in the human body usually not complete, but can remain viable for several months. Life cycle of Toxocara canis.
