Presentation

  • However, we were unable to determine the geographical origin of the snakes examined in the present study.[doi.org]

  • In the present reported cases, skin biopsies were performed on three Japanese patients. As a result, cross sections of the larvae were clearly observed in the biopsied specimens.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract The present study is concerned with a survey of the epidemiology and infectivity of Gnathostoma hispidum larvae in animals. A total or 3,478 pigs were examined in Hongze-Lake, Jiangsu; Po-Lake, Anhui; and Jiujiang, in Jiangxi Province.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Anorexia
  • CHEN Mei,CHEN Qingquan,YE Xiangqun LIN Xiumin (Life-Science College Xiamen University,Fujian 361005) The typical symptom of Gnathostomiasis is that the infected swine keep vomiting,anorexia,emaciated,lose weight and its eosinophil leukocyte increased.Swine[en.cnki.com.cn]
  • Such symptoms include: Fever and malaise Urticaria Gastrointestinal symptoms: diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, anorexia and epigastric/right upper quadrant abdominal pain (epigastric or pain) These symptoms may last for 2–3 weeks, as the larva migrates through[dermnetnz.org]
Fatigue
  • The symptoms included itching, nodule formation, fatigue, urticaria, fever, pain on the skin, and erythematous plaques. Skin biopsies of two cases revealed no parasites.[ajtmh.org]
Abdominal Pain
  • Such symptoms include: Fever and malaise Urticaria Gastrointestinal symptoms: diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, anorexia and epigastric/right upper quadrant abdominal pain (epigastric or pain) These symptoms may last for 2–3 weeks, as the larva migrates through[dermnetnz.org]
Nausea

Papule
  • A 74-year-old Korean man who returned from China complained of an erythematous papule on his back and admitted to our hospital.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Urticaria
  • The symptoms included itching, nodule formation, fatigue, urticaria, fever, pain on the skin, and erythematous plaques. Skin biopsies of two cases revealed no parasites.[ajtmh.org]

Suggestibility
  • The outbreak of the human infection is suggested to have been due to G. spinigerum, which is known to live out its life cycle in the Yangon area of Myanmar. Copyright 2003 The American Society of Tropical Medicine Article metrics loading...[ajtmh.org]

Etiology

  • Nematodes of the genus Gnathostoma (Nematoda: Gnathostomatidae) are the etiological agents of human gnathostomiasis and may also infest dogs, cats, tigers and leopards (3).[med-chem.com]

Epidemiology

  • The survey of epidemiology and biology of G. hispidum and G. spinigerum were quite similar, so the authors consider that humans may be infected by G. hispidum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • In many regions with endemic Gnathostoma, there is low social awareness regarding ways to prevent gnathostomiasis.[web.stanford.edu]
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cannot attest to the accuracy of a non-federal website.[dpd.cdc.gov]
