  • Abstract The effect of sodium benzoate (SB) on the pathogenesis of Hymenolepis nana (H. nana) and its neurological manifestations was studied in the present work. One hundred and thirty five mice were classified into three groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • H. nana is more frequent in populations living in conditions of poverty and poor hygiene, particularly when fleas are present.[merckmanuals.com]
  • The more worms present, the shorter the total length of each worm. The adult worm is rarely seen in the stool. Laboratory Report: Hymenolepis nana eggs present.[med-chem.com]

Treatment

  • Radical treatment of Hymenolepis nana with niclosamide. J Trop Med Hyg 1970;73(10):258–259. 2. Baranski MC. [Treatment of human taeniasis and hymenolepiasis with praziquantel (Embay 8440) (author's transl)]. Bol Chil Parasitol 1977;32(1-2):37–39. 3.[parasitol.kr]
  • Treatment efficacy was 75{\%}. Hymenolepiasis in this community did not have significant impact on specific symptoms.[jhu.pure.elsevier.com]
  • Praziquantel Alternatively, nitazoxanide or, outside the US, niclosamide The treatment of choice for H. nana infection is Praziquantel 25 mg/kg po once Alternatives include nitazoxanide and niclosamide (not available in the US).[merckmanuals.com]
  • Its treatment includes the use of surgery, percutaneous treatment and use of benzimidazoles.[medicineonline.es]
  • Treatment is available. A prescription drug called praziquantel is given. The medication causes the dwarf tapeworm to dissolve within the intestine. Praziquantel is generally well tolerated. Sometimes more than one treatment is necessary.[cdc.gov]

Epidemiology

  • Its diagnosis is based on clinical, epidemiological, immunological and radiological data. Treatment should be aimed at the clinical manifestations with the use of anti-seizures, costicosteroids and anti-helminthics (albendazole and praziquantel).[medicineonline.es]
  • Neurocysticercosis can be a leading cause of epilepsy, depending on epidemiologic circumstances. The host reaction to degenerating cysts can produce signs and symptoms of meningitis.[thewatchers.us]

  • How can dwarf tapeworm infection be prevented? To reduce the likelihood of infection you should: Wash your hands with soap and warm water after using the toilet, changing diapers, and before preparing foods.[cdc.gov]
  • While the tapeworm larvae are inside the intestinal lining, the immune system somehow prevents the parasite from invading the rest of the body.[theverge.com]
