Trichinella Nativa


Presentation

  • Striae are present in most parts of the cuticle of T, nativa. By contrast, the amorphous cuticle of T. pseudospiralis is not striated, it stains for carbohydrates and AMS.[folia.paru.cas.cz]
  • Nine patients presented individually at a local emergency department in Northern Ontario within several days of each other.[academic.oup.com]
Fatigue
  • Within 2 weeks of the diarrheal illness, systemic symptoms developed in all exposed individuals characterized by fever, myalgia, periorbital edema, and fatigue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Trichinellosis is caused by the ingestion of undercooked meat containing encysted larvae, the first signs include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, fatigue, fever, and abdominal discomfort.[parasite.wormbase.org]
  • Approximately 2 weeks postconsumption, the patients returned for assessment with diffuse myalgia, periorbital edema, fever, and fatigue.[academic.oup.com]
Pain
  • Results: All 10 exposed individuals developed an acute illness clinically compatible with trichinellosis, characterized by fever, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, along with eosinophilia ranging from 0.9 109/L to 6.1 109/L.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • For the physician, it offers a patient with painful and sometimes fatal disease; for the public-health official, a threat to the commonweal; for the experimental biologist, a life cycle that is unique yet easily and rapidly maintained in the laboratory[books.google.es]
  • Chest pain and ST elevation resolved rapidly postthrombolysis.[academic.oup.com]
Hunting
  • In the last decade, the grey seal population of the sub-arctic Baltic Sea has reached a level at which hunting is possible and seal meat is now available for food.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Although the bear was hunted close to city limits, it is unlikely that the high LPG resulted from scavenging among domestic food sources.[academic.oup.com]

Diarrhea
  • Results: All 10 exposed individuals developed an acute illness clinically compatible with trichinellosis, characterized by fever, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, along with eosinophilia ranging from 0.9 109/L to 6.1 109/L.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Trichinellosis is caused by the ingestion of undercooked meat containing encysted larvae, the first signs include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, fatigue, fever, and abdominal discomfort.[parasite.wormbase.org]
  • Each patient demonstrated nonbloody watery diarrhea, diffuse abdominal pain, fever, and nausea; 1 patient also had a diffuse maculopapular rash ( Figure 1 ).[academic.oup.com]
Abdominal Pain
  • Results: All 10 exposed individuals developed an acute illness clinically compatible with trichinellosis, characterized by fever, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, along with eosinophilia ranging from 0.9 109/L to 6.1 109/L.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Each patient demonstrated nonbloody watery diarrhea, diffuse abdominal pain, fever, and nausea; 1 patient also had a diffuse maculopapular rash ( Figure 1 ).[academic.oup.com]
Vomiting
  • Trichinellosis is caused by the ingestion of undercooked meat containing encysted larvae, the first signs include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, fatigue, fever, and abdominal discomfort.[parasite.wormbase.org]

  • ST-elevation myocardial infarction and sinus venous tract thrombosis occurred as a complication of trichinellosis in 2 patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Periorbital Edema
  • Within 2 weeks of the diarrheal illness, systemic symptoms developed in all exposed individuals characterized by fever, myalgia, periorbital edema, and fatigue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
