Hunting Poses Only a Low Risk for Alveolar Echinococcosis.

Front Public Health 2019 29;7. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Department of Pathobiology, Institute of Parasitology, University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna, Austria.

The Austrian province of Tyrol belongs to the areas where the alveolar echinococcosis (AE) caused by the fox tapeworm () is highly endemic. In Central Europe and since 2011 in Austria, a growing incidence of human cases of AE has been observed, presumably linked with increasing fox populations infected by the fox tapeworm . Hunting and the related activities put hunters in a high-risk group, and they are considered particularly vulnerable for the contraction of an AE. Read More

Echinococcosis: Advances in the 21st Century.

Clin Microbiol Rev 2019 Mar 13;32(2). Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Molecular Parasitology Laboratory, Infectious Diseases Division, QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

SUMMARYEchinococcosis is a zoonosis caused by cestodes of the genus (family Taeniidae). This serious and near-cosmopolitan disease continues to be a significant public health issue, with western China being the area of highest endemicity for both the cystic (CE) and alveolar (AE) forms of echinococcosis. Considerable advances have been made in the 21st century on the genetics, genomics, and molecular epidemiology of the causative parasites, on diagnostic tools, and on treatment techniques and control strategies, including the development and deployment of vaccines.

Hepatic alveolar hydatid disease (Echinococcus multilocularis), a mimic of liver malignancy: a review for the radiologist in non-endemic areas.

Clin Radiol 2019 Feb 9. Epub 2019 Feb 9.

Department of Imaging, University College London Hospital (UCLH) NHS Trust, London, UK.

Alveolar hydatid disease or alveolar echinococcosis (AE) is caused by the parasite Echinococcus multilocularis and is increasingly seen as an imported disease in non-endemic areas such as the UK. It is rare compared to cystic echinococcosis (CE), but like CE commonly affects the liver. AE does have imaging features that can aid in diagnosis, but is often initially misdiagnosed as liver malignancy. Read More

Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Jabir Ibn Hayyan Medical University, Najaf City, Iraq.

Introduction: Acute limb ischemia is a sudden decrease in limb perfusion that threatens the viability of the limb. Complete or even partial occlusion of the arterial supply to a limb can lead to rapid ischemia and poor functional outcomes within hours. In human echinococcosis cardiac involvement is a rare presentation, it may lead to life-threatening complications including cyst rupture; anaphylactic shock; tamponade; pulmonary, cerebral or peripheral arterial embolism.

Evaluation of cross-reactivity to Taenia hydatigena and Echinococcus granulosus in the enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot assay for the diagnosis of porcine cysticercosis.

Parasit Vectors 2019 Jan 24;12(1):57. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Center for Global Health Tumbes, Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Tumbes, Peru.

Background: Taenia solium is an important zoonotic parasite that infects humans as definitive host (taeniasis) and pigs as intermediate host (cysticercosis). Serological diagnosis of porcine cysticercosis is limited to antigen detection using ELISA, which is known to cross-react with other Taenia species, and antibody detection using the lentil-lectin glycoprotein enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot (LLGP EITB), which has not been adequately evaluated for cross-reactivity to other parasites. Field studies suggest that the GP50 diagnostic band of the LLGP EITB may cross-react to Taenia hydatigena, a common non-zoonotic parasitic infection of pigs. Read More
