Many human infections are asymptomatic, with only eosinophilia and positive serology. O modelo de estudo foi seccional.

In younger dogs, the larvae migrate through the lungs, bronchial tree, and esophagus; adult worms develop and oviposit in the small intestine. The size range for the three most commonly observed species differs slightly: Toxocara canis accomplishes its life cycle in dogs, with humans acquiring cqnis infection as accidental hosts.

When interpreting the serologic findings, clinicians must be aware that a measurable titer does not cuclo indicate current clinical Toxocara canis infection.

Once infected, a female dog will usually harbor sufficient larvae to subsequently infect all of her litters, even if she never again encounters an infection.

The toxoczra treatment for puppies is pyrantel pamoate to prevent the ciiclo from reproducing and causing disease.

In VLM, which occurs mostly in preschool children, the larvae invade multiple tissues liver, heart, lungs, brain, muscle and cause various symptoms including fever, anorexia, weight loss, cough, wheezing, rashes, hepatosplenomegaly, and hypereosinophilia.

Consumption of eggs from feces-contaminated items is the most common method of infection for humans especially children and young adults under the age of 20 years. Transmammary transmission occurs when the suckling pup becomes infected by the presence of L 3 larvae in the milk during the first three weeks of lactation.

Eggs are not clinically diagnostic for human cases. These modes of infection include direct transmission, prenatal transmission, paratenic transmission, and transmammary transmission.


By contrast, massive infection with Toxocara canis can be fatal in puppies. The larvae encyst in gut wall tissues within older dogs. OLM often occurs in older children or young adults, with only rare eosinophilia or visceral manifestations.
