Cestodes are worldwide tapeworms. They have a long body, or strobile, which consist of a chain of segments or proglottids, which contains a male and female reproductive system. They are commonly located in the intestine of man and provoke digestive disturbances. Intermediate hosts are different according to the taenia. Diagnosis is based on the recovery of the characteristic proglottids or eggs in the stools examination. à single dose of praziquantel is effective. © 2012 - Elsevier Masson SAS - Tous droits réservé s.

Trichinellosis is a worldwide parasitic zoonosis, due to the consumption of poorly cooked pig, boar, horse or bear meat. Patients complain of fever, diarrhea, facial edema and myalgia. The diagnosis is suspected on an increased level of eosinophil count and muscular enzymes, and confirmed by serological tests. The sooner the treatment with albendazole and prednisolone is introduced, the sooner the symptoms decrease. Prevention is based on pork control and sufficient cooking of meat at 63 °C. © 2014 - Elsevier Masson SAS - Tous droits réservés. Source

Consumption of sea fish, undercooked or raw can be a cause of anisakidosis (or anisakiasis) following the ingestion of nematode larvae of the family Anisakidae. The most infected fish are herring, pollock, saithe and cod. In the acute form, appears gastric pain within hours following the contaminant meal. These pain, due to the penetration of the mucosa by one or several larvae, can be accompanied by some allergic manifestations. The larvae can then be eradicated during endoscopy, diagnostic and therapeutic procedure. Late intestinal form, is most often discovered incidentally, post-operative; by setting histological evidence of larvae in a granuloma responsible of a tumor syndrome (pain, obstruction, bleeding). The chronic form occurs in sensitized patients, regular consumers of infected fish, even cooked. It is due to a thermostable A simplex allergen which may lead to chronic urticaria, angiœdema or also anaphylactic shock. Many immune mechanisms involving the expression of cytokines induced by the presence of the parasite (Ig production E) associated with genetic predispositions are also involved. These chronic forms are frequently reported in Spain, where consumers of fish are numerous. Biological tests are sometimes difficult to interpret because of the antigenic relationship between two nematodes of the same family (Ascaridoidea): A. simplex and Toxocara canis. The best diagnostic and therapeutic element of this new form of anisakidosis is to stop eating parasitized fish allowing the disappearance of clinical manifestations, especially hives. © 2014 - Elsevier Masson SAS - Tous droits réservés.
