Antihelminithic drugs are used to treat infections in dogs and puppies for adult worms. The existence of home contact with dogs and puppies showed an association with the presence of Ac anti- Toxocara canis in the study population. ABSTRACT A cross-sectional study was carried out in the Waimiri and Atroari settlements in Balbina, between July and October cicclo, with the aims of estimating the frequency of the antibody anti- Toxocara canis of the IgG class and studying the epidemiological and sociocultural variables.


The latter, Toxocara excretory-secretory TES antigens, are preferable to larval extracts because they are convenient to produce and because an absorption-purification step is csnis required for obtaining maximum specificity. The life cycle is completed when dogs eat these hosts and the larvae develop into egg-laying adult worms in the small intestine. Toxocariasis is caused by larvae of Toxocara canis dog roundworm and less frequently of T. Toxocara canis also known as dog roundworm is cilo helminth parasite of dogs and other canids.


Secernentea Spiruria Camallanida Dracunculus medinensis Dracunculiasis.

Further confirmation of the specificity of the serologic diagnosis of OLM can be obtained by testing aqueous or vitreous humor samples for antibodies. Global Health — Division of Parasitic Diseases. Toxocara canis accomplishes its life cycle in dogs, with humans acquiring the infection as accidental hosts. Diphyllobothrium latum Diphyllobothriasis Spirometra erinaceieuropaei Sparganosis Diphyllobothrium mansonoides Sparganosis.

Object measured approximately 75 micrometers. As paratenic hosts, a number of vertebratesincluding humans, and some invertebrates can become infected.

Puppies are a major source of environmental egg contamination. Once in the lungs, the larvae enter into the alveoli and crawl up the trachea.


Unembryonated eggs are shed in the feces of the definitive host. The adult canis has a round body with spiky cranial and caudal parts, covered by yellow cuticula.

For both VLM and OLM, a presumptive diagnosis rests on clinical signs, history of exposure to puppies, laboratory findings including eosinophiliaand the detection of antibodies to Toxocara. Institute of Biology and the British Society for Parasitology; Evaluation of the true sensitivity and specificity of serologic tests for toxocariasis in human populations is not possible because of the lack of parasitologic methods to detect Toxocara parasites.

Toxocara canis – Wikipedia

There are several ways to prevent a T. Unembryonated eggs are shed in the feces of the definitive host. British Parasitological Society and Institute of Biology, p. They also possess large cervical alae with striations. DPDx is an education resource designed for health professionals and laboratory scientists.

Toxocara canis can also be transmitted through ingestion of paratenic hosts: Archived from the original on 7 March The best treatment for puppies is pyrantel pamoate to prevent the larvae from reproducing and causing disease. While the larvae do not undergo any further development in these sites, they can cause severe local reactions that are the basis of toxocariasis. Toxocara canis Werner Antibody Detection Antibody detection tests are the only means of confirmation of a clinical diagnosis of visceral larva migrans VLMocular larva migrans OLMand covert toxocariasis CTthe most common clinical syndromes associated with Toxocara infections.

The cysts can reactivate in pregnant females to infect puppies either through the placenta in utero or the mammary glands in colostrum and milk. In most human populations, a small number of those tested have positive EIA titers that apparently reflect the prevalence of asymptomatic toxocariasis. Moreira S, Pereira F. In this parasitic disease the diagnosis does not rest on identification of the parasite.

Male worms measure 9—13 by 0. When interpreting the serologic findings, clinicians must be aware that a measurable titer does not necessarily indicate current clinical Toxocara canis infection.
