Letter to the editor: Is there a clear role of imaging in the diagnosis of cerebral sparganosis at present?
Biochemical and immunopathological changes in experimental neurotoxocariasis
We found that larval recovery showed progressive increase over the course of infection. Furthermore, the infected mice displayed increased expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines and iNOS, as well as significant disturbances in neurotransmitter profile. Astrocytic activation, evidenced by enhanced...
Strongyloides stercoralis hyperinfection: difficulties in diagnosis and treatment.
We present the case of one such patient who underwent a negative laparotomy for a presumed intra-abdominal surgical catastrophe with a subsequent protracted stay on the intensive care unit. Once the diagnosis of strongyloidiasis was made, the patient was successfully treated with subcutaneous antihe...
Alicata disease: neuroinfestation by Angiostrongylus cantonensis in Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil.
[C3c activation and intrathecal biosynthesis in children suffering from eosinophilic meningoencephalitis due to Angiostrongylus cantonensis]...
Median cell number was 396 x 10(-6)/L with an average of 8.8% of eosinophils. Main symptoms were headache, vomiting and fever. Meningeal signs were present in 50% of the patients. C3c intrathecal synthesis occurred in 13 patients (92.8%). CONCLUSION: It was demonstrated the participation of compleme...
Severe disseminated hydatid disease successfully treated medically with prolonged administration of albendazole.
[MRI diagnosis of cerebral sparganosis in children].
MR findings in children with cerebral sparganosis are specific. Mastering correctly the typical imaging features of the disease can be very helpful in reducing the rate of clinical misdiagnosis....
Apoptosis in meningoencephalitis of Angiostrongylus cantonensis-infected mice
We investigated the characteristics of cell death induced in BABL/c mice infected with A. cantonensis. We observed increased expression of the apoptotic proteins, caspase-3, caspase-8, caspase-9, and cytochrome c, and decreased expression of anti-apoptotic proteins, B-cell leukemia 2 and inhibitor o...
Multiple brain hemorrhages and hematomas associated with ectopic fascioliasis in brain and eye
Multiple brain hemorrhages and hematomas can be associated with ectopic fascioliasis in brain and eyes. An intracranial infection occasionally caused by F hepatica or other parasites can be indicated by a fever of unknown origin, eosinophilia, and iterative intracranial hemorrhages. Ingestion of P d...
Experimental toxocariosis in BALB/c mice: Effect of the inoculation dose on brain and eye involvement
We have shown that the eye involvement with Toxocara canis larvae is a phenomenon mainly produced once larvae have reached the brain. There is a direct relationship between the parasitic load and the number of ocular larvae. Moreover, the arrival of larvae to the eye is an independent event, unrelat...
