Bertiella Mucronata


Presentation

  • These infections present with symptoms similar to most tapeworm cases, and are frequently misdiagnosed.[findwords.info]
  • Parasite tegument was damaged, presenting discontinuous portions. Few testes could be observed ( Figure 1E ).[journals.plos.org]
  • Rounded, modified microtriches were present on the external surface of the bladder enclosing the cysticercoid .[glosbe.com]
  • Bertiella transmission is through oribatid mites that are present in the soil of problem areas, and can be easily prevented by avoiding contact with nonhuman primates, rodents and soil in these areas.[findwords.info]

Treatment

  • Specific identification of the worm was based on a review of the previous human cases and a detailed study of proglottids removed by anthelmintic treatment and here described.[scinapse.io]
  • Of 29 different Bertiella species, only two can infect humans: Bertiella studeri (majority of human cases), and Bertiella mucronata . [2] Treatment [ edit ] Albendazole is not effective in treating this condition; praziquantel is the preferred agent.[wikivividly.com]
  • Oral use of ivermectin, an antiparasitic avermectin medicine, has proved to be an effective and noninvasive treatment that leads to the emigration of the larva.[wikivisually.com]
  • During treatment, a further seven small fragments and one large portion of the worm's strobilus were expelled by the patient.[journals.plos.org]

Etiology

  • Etiology: Bertiella studeri (B. satyri) and B. mucronata are anoplocephalid ces-.[xpuovvow.gq]
  • This species is the main etiological agent of human bertiellosis in the world, except in South America, where infections were diagnosed to be caused by Bertiella sp. or by the species B. mucronata .[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • However, most described cases come from individual records given by physicians, and have not undergone proper epidemiological studies.[scielo.br]
  • Taxonomic, biological, epidemiological, pathological, diagnostic, control, prevention and therapeutic aspects of the zoonosis are analyzed, and the increase in zoonotic potentiality of the parasitosis is discussed Link permanente para citações: Bertiella[biblioteca.portalbolsasdeestudo.com.br]

  • He also suggested that an epidemiological inquiry should be performed in humans to ascertain the true prevalence of this parasitosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
