TRICHINELLA (Trichinella spiralis parasites infecting humans)

 

Trichinella spiralis roundworm parasite

Trichinella spiralis can infect bears, horses, humans, pigs and rodents. Trichinosis can be contracted by eating undercooked or raw pork infected with these parasites. Cysts are present in infected pork and once eaten the immature roundworms are released and can travel to human muscles. They burrow into the larynx, chest, abdomen, jaw and upper arm and cause tender calcified cysts in muscles and fever.

Symptoms of trichinella infection

Upon infection there will be two to four weeks of acute gastrointestinal symptoms, thereafter severe muscle pain plus a wide range symptoms which can masquerade as a variety of more familiar diseases. In the advanced stages the Trichinella creates cysts within muscles, causes extreme dehydration, swelling of the lips and eyelids, difficulty breathing, enlarged lymph glands, meningitis and pneumonia.
