(Trichiniasis)

A trichinosis is an infection with Trichinella spiralis or related Trichinella. The complaints made u. a. from an initial gastrointestinal disorder, which is followed by a periorbital edema, muscle pain, fever, and eosinophilia. The diagnosis is made clinically and serologically confirmed. A muscle biopsy may be diagnostic conclusive, but is rarely necessary. Treatment is with mebendazole or albendazole, with severe symptoms in addition to prednisone.

Trichinosis occurs worldwide. It can be caused britovi not only by the traditional pathogen Trichinella spiralis, but also by T. pseudospiralis, T. nativa, T. nelsoni and T..

Pathophysiology The life cycle is maintained by animals that are fed with other animals (eg. As pigs, horses) or other animals eat (z. B. bears, foxes, wild boar), the striated muscle encysted infective larvae contain (eg. as rodents). An infection of humans occurs through the consumption of raw, undercooked, or not fully processed meat of infected animals, mostly from pigs, wild boar or bear. The larvae hatch in the small intestine from the cysts, penetrate the mucosa and mature into adult worms within 6-8 days. Females are about 2.2 mm long and males about 1.2 mm. Mature females set about 4-6 weeks at a time living larvae free and then die or be excreted. Newborn larvae migrate through the bloodstream and body, but ultimately survive only within striated skeletal muscle cells. The larvae form cysts in 1-2 months and remain viable as intracellular parasites over several years. Dead larvae are ultimately absorbed or calcify. The life cycle is continued only if encysted larvae are eaten by another predator. Life cycle of Trichinella.
