Taenia Saginata


Presentation

  • Serum samples were collected from 142 individuals: 40 of them were diagnosed with NC, 62 presented Taenia sp. and other parasites, and 40 were apparently healthy individuals.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In the present study, we evaluated PCR coupled to restriction fragment length polymorphism to differentiate Taenia solium from Taenia saginata eggs present in fecal samples from naturally infected patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We report a 25-year-old woman who presented with abdominal pain, vomiting and fever, and had an epigastric lump on examination. At laparotomy she was diagnosed to have acute segmental jejunitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A thirteen-year old girl presented with acute right lower quadrant abdominal pain for which evaluation suggested appendicitis. At laparotomy, the appendix was normal but a Meckel's diverticulum with an impacted Taenia saginata (tapeworm) was found.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A case of moving ileal Taenia saginata parasites is presented with demonstrative images.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Shivering
  • Home Taenia s aginata Taenia saginata, more commonly known as the “beef tapeworm, ” tends to send a repulsive shiver down one’s spine. But, wait! Look a little deeper at this organism and one will realize how interesting it can be.[bioweb.uwlax.edu]
Right Upper Quadrant Pain
  • We report a case of acute cholangitis caused by T. saginata presenting with fever, nausea, vomiting, jaundice and right upper quadrant pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The present illness began during convalescence, ten days after the cataract operation, when the patient began complaining of occasional dull right upper quadrant pain.[jamanetwork.com]
Recurrent Abdominal Pain
  • Patients scheduled for esophagectomy who experienced recurrent abdominal pain in areas endemic with a tapeworm need to be screened for taeniasis before surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Short Arm
  • A 5,100-bp fragment which was composed of a 1,272-bp fragment of T. saginata gDNA and a 3,800-bp fragment from the short arm of λgt10 phage was obtained.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Suggestibility
  • However, a subsequent national survey in 2012 showed 0.04% (10 cases) prevalence of Taenia spp. eggs suggesting its resurgence in Korea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A thirteen-year old girl presented with acute right lower quadrant abdominal pain for which evaluation suggested appendicitis. At laparotomy, the appendix was normal but a Meckel's diverticulum with an impacted Taenia saginata (tapeworm) was found.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Endopeptidase activity was partially enhanced in the presence of exogenous thiols and partially inhibited with the cysteine proteinase inhibitor E-64, suggesting the presence of both serine and cysteine endopeptidases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • DNA amplification of some of these taeniids showed different patterns, suggesting the possibility that strain differences exist.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This time-course study suggests that although copro-antigen ELISA is an excellent diagnostic tool for established patent infections of T. saginata, it may not be reliable for faecal antigen detection in the early infection phase prior to proglottid release[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • ALB-SO or ALB were administered in the different dosages, in different days of treatments.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This case emphasizes the need of developing and implementing techniques that will help us differentiate the species of Taenia in laboratories as well as establish treatments with alternative drugs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Alternative treatments of taeniasis vary in the degree of safety; tin compounds and Aspidium extracts often are toxic.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Corresponding figures for the imported prime cuts were 1,260 (99 to 2,900) viable cysts, 462 (37 to 1,065) ingested without sufficient heat treatment, causing 132 (8 to 361) human infections.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Copro-antigens could not be reliably detected until 2 weeks before proglottid patency but then remained highly elevated over the next 15 weeks until treatment. Copro-antigen levels reverted to negative 4 days post-treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • (Outcomes/Resolutions) With prompt diagnosis, immediate and effective treatment, the prognosis for Taenia Saginata Infection is excellent The prognosis is guarded, if the infection has spread to the brain, which may occur in some untreated cases Additional[dovemed.com]

Etiology

  • […] morphology were seen, in most cases the infestations were of solitary specimens with normal morphology. 4–7 In previously published cases as well as the case we present, although it is difficult to establish the direct mechanism causing the complication, the etiological[elsevier.es]
  • (Etiology) Taenia Saginata Infection is a parasitic infection caused by the tapeworm species Taenia Saginata or the beef tapeworm The infection is generally acquired by eating undercooked contaminated beef What are the Signs and Symptoms of Taenia Saginata[dovemed.com]
  • In previously published cases as well as the case we present, although it is difficult to establish the direct mechanism causing the complication, the etiological connection is highly probable.[panafrican-med-journal.com]

Epidemiology

  • Andrew.McFadden@maf.govt.nz Abstract The paper describes the epidemiological investigation carried out on two dairy farms with cattle infected with Taenia saginata cysts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract The taeniasis in East Asia has a special epidemiological pattern: people eat meat and/or viscera of pigs and acquire infection of Taenia saginata-like tapeworms. However, cysticercosis is more often found in pigs than cattles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The public health impact from consuming imported beef is not large, but the model illustrates how imported cuts may change the epidemiological pattern of a disease even when the import constitutes only 3% of the prime cuts consumed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Conclusion: According to the clinical feature, epidemiological information and sequencing results, this case is confirmed to be a local infection of Taenia saginata.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract An epidemiological survey of taeniasis/cysticercosis was carried out in one semi-urban and two urban villages in three districts of Bali, Indonesia in 2002 and 2004.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • […] from T. solium infection by the late 1700s However, the exact life cycle of T. saginata was not discovered until 1863, when cattle was identified as the immediate host Epidemiology Especially common in Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia, Latin America Pathophysiology[pathologyoutlines.com]

Prevention

  • Prevention Preventing taenia saginata is simple and consists of making sure to properly cooking beef. Also, routine veterinary checks in slaughterhouses can reduce the risk of infection.[health.ccm.net]
  • Box 7, Nablus, West Bank, Palestine. sameh.abuseir@gmail.com Abstract Control measures to prevent human infections with the food-borne zoonotic helminth Taenia saginata are currently based on meat inspection, which shows rather low diagnostic sensitivity[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A practical vaccine to prevent infection with the parasite in cattle would be valuable and would assist in control of transmission of the parasite to humans, the obligate definitive host.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
