    Toxocariasis is a preventable parasitic disease that is caused by the dog and cat roundworms Toxocara cani and T. cati, respectively. Humans become infected when they accidently ingest infectious Toxocara eggs commonly found in contaminated soil; children are most often by: a Additional records consisted of five yearly reports on Toxocara antibody detection in patients suspected of VLM or OLM; one book chapter on VLM and a master's thesis on toxocariasis in dogs. b Reasons for exclusion were: 1. non-relevant association between the keywords (60%) (e.g., Cuba as name of the author, reports on Toxocara published in a Cuban journal, paper, Cited by:

      Toxocariasis is caused by Toxocara canis (T. canis) and, less frequently, Toxocara catis (T. catis), which are intestinal nematodes (roundworms) found in dogs and cats, respectively. In humans, toxocariasis is considered an aberrant infection because humans are incidental hosts, as the parasites cannot successfully reach full maturity in the human body.   Toxocara species infect a wide range of companion, domestic and wild animals as definitive and paratenic hosts, via multiple routes of transmission, producing long-lived tissue-inhabiting larvae and resistant eggs that can survive in the external environment. Therefore Toxocara and the disease it causes in humans, toxocariasis, represents an ideal aetiological Cited by:

Description Toxocara and Toxocariasis, Volume in the Advances in Parasitology series, includes medical studies of parasites of major influence, along with reviews of more traditional areas, such as zoology, taxonomy and life history, all topics which help to shape current thinking and applications.

This latest release includes chapters on organism and the recognition of the Seller Rating: % positive. The symptoms of toxocariasis, the disease caused by these migrating larvae, include fever, coughing, inflammation of the liver, or eye problems.

A U.S. study in showed that 30% of dogs younger than 6 months deposit Toxocara eggs in their feces; other studies have shown that almost all puppies are born already infected with Toxocara canis. Causal Agents. Toxocariasis in humans is caused by infection with larvae of Toxocara spp., which are common ascarid roundworms of med zoonotic species include the dog roundworm T.

canis (presumed most common) and the cat roundworm T. cati (frequency not known). It is not known whether other closely-related Toxocara species can. Hector H. Garcia, Oscar H.

Del Brutto, in Handbook of Clinical Neurology, Toxocariasis (Toxocara canis, Toxocara cati)Toxocariasis is a cosmopolitan nematode infection caused by the dog roundworm T.

canis or the cat roundworm T. cati.A large proportion of the general population is exposed to the agent early in life, most likely from contamination from dog/cat feces in public.

Etiology. Clinical Toxocariasis is a product of Toxocara species migration through tissues. Toxocara canis primarily infects canids (dogs, foxes, and wolves) whereas T. cati primarily infects felids (cats). cati is thought to more frequently cause severe human disease. Children are more prone to infection via the fecal-oral route as they are more likely to consume Toxocara eggs by Author: Walter T.

Winders, Lacey Menkin-Smith. Thomas M. Craig, in Food Animal Practice (Fifth Edition), Toxocara (Neoascaris) Toxocara vitulorum is a large, robust worm up to 30 cm long with three large, prominent lips. The eggs, 75 to 95 × 60 to 75 µm, are dark, subglobular, and single celled with a thick-pitted shell and are passed by calves because transmammary acquisition is the only proven method of transmission.

Toxocariasis is caused by Toxocara species, which are common roundworms of dogs and cats (especially puppies or kittens), specifically Toxocara canis and Toxocara cati in the United States; most cases are caused by T canis.

Other nematodes of animals also can cause this syndrome, although rarely. TOXOCARIASIS, OCULAR TOXOCARIASIS. Toxocariasis is one of most common zoonotic infections worldwide mostly caused by Toxocara canis and less frequently by other roundworms such as Toxocara cati [1, 2].Geographic distribution of toxocariasis is worldwide and seropositivity of toxocara antibody varies from % [] to % [].Historically, inBeaver Cited by: Toxocara is a parasitic helminth worm which continues to stimulate both public concern and scientific interest.

Toxocara canis andthe most studied species, are gastrointestinal parasites of dogs and cats and their eggs can contaminate the environment, thus exposing humans and other mammals and birds to infection.

Many questions remain unanswered about. Toxocara is a genus of nematodes that are cosmopolitan gastrointestinal species of both companion and feral animals that act as definitive hosts. Toxocara canis infects both domestic dogs and foxes, whereas the hosts of T.

cati include the domestic cat and other felids. Widespread environmental contamination, as a consequence of eggs being shed in the host. This book provides a comprehensive review of Toxocara and the disease it causes known as toxocariasis. It brings together a wide range of topics and approaches concerning this parasite of veterinary and medical importance, and provides a unique model system to explore questions in parasite biology.

Toxocara spp. eggs are extremely resistant to physical and chemical agents, and in temperate climates can survive well over winter, for 6 to 12 months (Fan et al., a).

Omar, J.W. Lewis --Diagnosis of Toxocara. Toxocara canis (also known as dog roundworm) is a worldwide-distributed helminth parasite of dogs and other name is derived from the Greek word "toxon," meaning bow or quiver, and the Latin word "caro," meaning flesh.

What is toxocariasis. Human toxocariasis is caused by infestation of the larvae of two widespread roundworms, Toxocara canis and Toxocara cati. Dog and cat intestines are the reservoir for T. canis and T. cati respectively. canis is more commonly responsible for human disease. Human toxocariasis is widespread and is usually symptom-free.

Toxocariasis is a zoonosis caused by Toxocara canis (dog ascarid) or Toxocara cati (cat ascarid) larvae. Humans become infected by ingesting eggs or larvae from contaminated sources (soil, water, and raw food) or via fecal–oral transmission.Human toxocariasis (HT) is a neglected zoonosis with a worldwide distribution [1].

It is mainly caused by larvae of the Toxocara canis or Toxocara cati, which are intestinal ascarid nematodes of.Toxocariasis is a zoonotic (animal to human) infection caused by Toxocara canis and, less frequently, by Toxocara cati, which are intestinal nematodes (roundworms) that parasite dogs and cats, respectively.
