This case is of interest for four rarely concurring reasons. It´s a worm infection that mimics IBD; the infection was diagnosed by colon biopsy; the infection caused a SIADH; and, most interestingly, even though the patient is on immunosupression, he remains asymptomatic.
Although infection with Toxocara canis or T. catis (commonly referred as toxocariasis) appears to be highly prevalent in (sub)tropical countries, information on its frequency and presentation in returning travelers and migrants is scarce. In this study, we reviewed all cases of asymptomatic and symptomatic toxocariasis diagnosed during post-travel consultations at the reference travel clinic of the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Antwerp, Belgium. Toxocariasis was considered as highly probable if serum Toxocara-antibodies were detected in combination with symptoms of visceral larva migrans if present, elevated eosinophil count in blood or other relevant fluid and reasonable exclusion of alternative diagnosis, or definitive in case of documented seroconversion. From 2000 to 2013, 190 travelers showed Toxocara-antibodies, of a total of 3436 for whom the test was requested (5.5%). Toxocariasis was diagnosed in 28 cases (23 symptomatic and 5 asymptomatic) including 21 highly probable and 7 definitive. All but one patients were adults. Africa and Asia were the place of acquisition for 10 and 9 cases, respectively. Twelve patients (43%) were short-term travelers (< 1 month). Symptoms, when present, developed during travel or within 8 weeks maximum after return, and included abdominal complaints (11/23 symptomatic patients, 48%), respiratory symptoms and skin abnormalities (10 each, 43%) and fever (9, 39%), often in combination. Two patients were diagnosed with transverse myelitis. At presentation, the median blood eosinophil count was 1720/μL [range: 510-14160] in the 21 symptomatic cases without neurological complication and 2080/μL [range: 1100-2970] in the 5 asymptomatic individuals. All patients recovered either spontaneously or with an anti-helminthic treatment (mostly a 5-day course of albendazole), except both neurological cases who kept sequelae despite repeated treatments and prolonged corticotherapy. Toxocariasis has to be considered in travelers returning from a (sub)tropical stay with varying clinical manifestations or eosinophilia. Prognosis appears favorable with adequate treatment except in case of neurological involvement.

There were no observed benefits of treatment with an albendazole CRC on the farms in the study. There was no strong evidence that tail amputation had any long-term effect on the growth rate of lambs or carcase traits. No detrimental effects were observed during processing of lambs with long tails in the abattoir. Lambs with entire tails had significantly greater mean dag scores than lambs with amputated tails. On one farm lambs with entire tails were at about twice the risk of requiring crutching and on another farm were at three times the risk of breech strike compared with lambs with amputated tails.

Monepantel showed excellent activity on A. ceylanicum adults (IC(50) = 1.7 µg/ml), a moderate effect on T. muris L3 (IC(50) = 78.7 µg/ml), whereas no effect was observed on A. ceylanicum L3, T. muris adults, and both stages of N. americanus. Of the standard drugs, levamisole showed the highest potency in vitro (IC(50) = 1.6 and 33.1 µg/ml on A. ceylanicum and T. muris L3, respectively). Complete elimination of worms was observed with monepantel (10 mg/kg) and albendazole (2.5 mg/kg) in A. ceylanicum-infected hamsters. In the N. americanus hamster model single 10 mg/kg oral doses of monepantel and albendazole resulted in worm burden reductions of 58.3% and 100%, respectively. Trichuris muris, S. ratti and A. suum were not affected by treatment with monepantel in vivo (following doses of 600 mg/kg, 32 mg/kg and 600 mg/kg, respectively). In contrast, worm burden reductions of 95.9% and 76.6% were observed following treatment of T. muris- and A. suum infected mice with levamisole (200 mg/kg) and albendazole (600 mg/kg), respectively.
The dosage form of medamine-medapec was found to have a high antiechinococcal activity in experiments on laboratory animals. Its efficacy was shown in treating larval alveolar echinococciasis in mice and cotton rats with different doses and courses as compared with medamine and albendazole. It was ascertained that for its high larvicidal activity, medapec should be given to animals regularly during a day. The daily dose of the drug should be gradually increased. In complying with these conditions, the duration of effective courses of therapy drastically reduces.

The mean reduction in volume at the time of the first follow-up was 87.0% and 73.5% in catheterization and PAIR patients, respectively. The immediate sonographic changes after treatment were detachment of the endocyst and disappearance of the regular endocyst, with a reduction in the fluid component. The solid appearance of the cyst remnant indicated complete cure as the cyst wall became irregular and thicker. The average time for development of a solid appearance was 19 months in PAIR patients and 26 months in catheterization patients. Seventy of 72 patients were cured, whereas two recurrences (2.8%) were observed. No mortality, abdominal dissemination, or tract seeding occurred. Minor complications were urticaria and fever in eight patients (11.1%). Major complications were infection of the cyst cavity in two patients (2.8%) and development of biliary fistula in four patients (5.6%). Mean hospitalization times were 17 days for complicated cases and I day for uncomplicated cases.

Results showed that 63.3% of the sampled population received the antifilarial drugs; of these, 94.5% ingested the drugs, yielding an acceptance rate of 60%. Half of the sampled population received the drugs from a fixed site, while only 13% was mopped up. A majority of the sampled population were aware of LF and MDA. Knowledge on LF prevention, cause, treatment and diagnosis and adverse events was low to moderate. Knowledge on LF and perceived benefits of antifilarial drugs were found to be associated with MDA acceptance (p = 0.08). Health workers remain the front liners in the MDA implementation. Local government units were aware of LF and MDA, but support was insufficient.

Although all lesions show non-specific imaging findings like non-tumorous myelopathy mimicking transverse myelitis, single lesion, focal nodular enhancement on posterior or posterolateral segment of spinal cord, relatively short segmental involvement and migration of lesion may be characteristic findings of spinal VLM of Toxocara canis. In addition, the reluctant response to the treatment may be characteristic of spinal VLM of Toxocara canis.

Of the 22 patients, 90.9% were men, with a mean age of 30.3 years (range 15 - 76 years). Two (9.1%) had bilateral involvement, 15 (68.2%) were non-contact lens users, 17 (77.3%) reported contamination with mud within 2 weeks (mean 6.8 days) of onset of symptoms. All patients presented with conjunctivitis and coarse, multifocal, punctate epithelial keratitis. Two out of 24 eyes (8.3%) had anterior stromal infiltrates, while 8 (33.3%) had anterior uveitis. Microsporidial spores were identified on modified trichrome staining of corneal epithelial scrapes in all eyes. All eyes were treated with epithelial debridement, topical fluoroquinolone and hexamidine diisethionate, 7 (31.8%) patients received oral albendazole, and all eyes with anterior uveitis received topical steroids. All cases resolved without visually significant sequelae.

Swine trichinellosis has been reported in 26 provinces, autonomous regions or municipalities (P/A/M) of China. The prevalence rate in swine varied from 0.12% to 34.2% in five P/A/M, from 0.01% to 0.0001% in other P/A/M. The seroepidemiological survey of swine trichinellosis was carried out by ELISA in seven P/A/M, the seroprevalence varied from 0.09% to 29.63%. The prevalence of Trichinella infection in pork sold at the market was from 0.29% to 5.6% in four provinces. The transmission of trichinellosis by garbage is the main features of epidemiology of swine trichinellosis in China. Rat is an important reservoir in the domestic cycle of trichinellosis. The prevalence rates of T. spiralis infection in rats were from 1.98% to 15.06% in six provinces or autonomous regions. The treatment prophylaxis with forage contained albendazole has been applied to the control of swine trichinellosis in Nanyang area of Henan province, the prevalence of swine trichinellosis had decreased from 32.2% before prophylaxis to 0.12% after prophylaxis.

Retrovesical cysts are extremely rare. For differential diagnosis radiologic findings and serologic tests can be used. In this article, we aimed to report our approach to diagnose and to treat a primary huge hydatid cyst in retrovesical space, between sigmoid colon and bladder. A 34-year old patient presented to our hospital with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). Abdominal ultrasound reported a 14x8 cm cystic lesion adjacent to the posterior wall of the bladder. Computerized tomography revealed a 14 x 8 cm cystic mass adjacent to bladder posteriorly and prostate and seminal vesicle anteriorly in the retrovesical space. Patient received albendazole prophylaxis and intervention was planned by transperitoneal approach. In a two-year of follow-up patient did not encounter any recurrences. Retrovesical cysts may cause LUTS. With patients suffering from LUTS, hydatid cyst should be kept in mind.
Histomoniasis or blackhead is a life-threatening disease of turkeys that is caused by a flagellated protozoan, Histomonas meleagridis. The development of an assay to measure the sensitivity of drugs traditionally used against this parasite, as reputed to be effective against other protozoan parasites, is described. The in vitro minimum lethal concentrations (MLC), time for drug efficacy, and parasite viability after removal of residual drugs were determined. Three of the 10 tested drugs, fenbendazole, albendazole, and sulfadiazine, were found to be ineffective against H. meleagridis. Nifursol, the only compound still authorized as a feed additive in Europe, is an inhibiting agent but is not lethal in vitro. Roxarsone, an arsenical derivate similar to nitarsone (the only authorized drug in United States), is effective at high concentration (200 microg/mL) after a long exposure (48 h). The lethal activity of dimetridazole, metronidazole, ronidazole, tinidazole, and furazolidone in vitro was demonstrated. Dimetridazole (MLC = 25 microg/mL after 6 h of exposure), metronidazole (MLC = 50 microg/mL after 24 h), and furazolidone (MLC = 50 microg/mL after 24 h) are rapidly effective at low concentrations. These results confirm the effectiveness of dimetridazole, a drug that has been used in the treatment and prevention of blackhead. In May 2002 this compound was removed as feed additive in Europe.
Cutaneous larva migrans (CLM), a serpiginous cutaneous eruption is the most commonly acquired tropical dermatosis. It is caused by infection with hookworm larvae in tropical and sub-tropical areas, and people who have a history of travel in these countries. The most frequent location of CLM is the distal lower extremities or buttocks. We describe a case of 57-year-old Iranian female patient with CLM of hand (unusual site) without traveling to endemic countries that was successfully treated with oral albendazole. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of CLM in Iran.
Angiostrongylus cantonensis (A. cantonensis) infection can lead to optic neuritis, retinal inflammation, damage to ganglion cells, demyelination of optic nerve and visual impairment. Combined therapy of albendazole and dexamethasone is a common treatment for the disease in the clinic, but it plays no role in vision recovery. Therefore, it has been necessary to explore alternative therapies to treat this disease. Previous studies reported the neuro-productive effects of two constituents of Danshen (a Chinese herb)-tanshinone II-A (TSII-A) and cryptotanshinone (CPT), and this study aims to evaluate the impacts of TSII-A or CPT combined with albendazole on optic neuritis caused by A. cantonensis infection in a murine model.
A woman with a history of cured breast cancer and multiple trips to India presented with a cervical nodule. Primarily suspected as metastasis of breast cancer, histopathology, however, showed the scolex of Taenia solium. Although the patient was neurologically asymptomatic neuroimaging showed multiple cysts. During treatment with praziquantel, albendazole, and dexamethason the patient developed seizures.

In vitro trials investigating the effects of albendazole and triclabendazole anthelmintics on the growth profiles of the egg-parasitic fungi Paecilomyces lilacinus and Verticillium chlamydosporium were undertaken. In addition, in vivo trials were conducted in goats fed on millet grain cultures of each fungus and administered albendazole and triclabendazole anthelmintics. In vitro growth revealed V. chlamydosporium to be more sensitive to albendazole compared to P. lilacinus. In contrast, triclabendazole had the least inhibitory effect on in vitro growth of both P. lilacinus and V. chlamydosporium. Similar to albendazole, growth of P. lilacinus was more vigorous at 0.5 ppm concentration of triclabendazole. Efforts to re-isolate these egg-parasitic fungi from faeces of goats fed on fungal millet grain cultures before and following single intraruminal administration of albendazole and triclabendazole showed that P. lilacinus was not able to be re-isolated from the faeces at any sampling period. In contrast, V. chlamydosporium was able to be re-isolated from the faeces at all of the sampling periods except for the samples taken at 8-18 h and 18-24 h after administration of albendazole and triclabendazole, respectively. Lack of fungal activity at these times coincided with peak plasma availability of anthelmintics and suggests faecal levels of drugs were also high at these times and impacted negatively on fungal viability.

Toxocariasis is a common zoonosis caused by infection with Toxocara canis or cati larvae. Ocular toxocariasis is one of the forms of infestation found in 1/1,000 - 1/10,000 children. Children with idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS) are at high risk of infections, also parasitic infestations, which can, in turn, cause relapses of the disease.

In the current study, we identified five sheep flocks with fasciolosis in the province of León (northwestern Spain) in order to determine the anthelmintic resistance status to three commonly used anthelmintics, namely albendazole (ABZ), triclabendazole (TCBZ) and clorsulon (CLOR). The identification of one flock resistant to ABZ and CLOR was shown after the faecal egg count reduction test (FECRT). The reductions in eggs per gram values were -17.6% and -68% against immature and adult flukes, respectively, after ABZ treatment; 85.15% and 44.91% against immature and adult flukes, respectively, after CLOR treatment; and 97.06% against both stages, after the administration of TCBZ. As an alternative to control the infection, two combinations of ABZ and CLOR were tested. In the first, both drugs were administered at the recommended dose of each; in this case, the efficiency reached values above 95% against both immature and adult flukes. However, when the combined drugs were administered at half the recommended dose of each, the efficiency of the combination was very low, i.e. 16.67% and -11.11% against mature and immature flukes, respectively. In conclusion, this preliminary report suggests a possible interaction between ABZ and CLOR after their joint administration. However, these results should be confirmed in other flocks.

Endemik bölgelerde gerek karaciğer ve gerekse akciğerde görülen kistik lezyonları kist hidatik olarak tanımlamaya bir eğilim vardır. Ancak bu eğilim zaman zaman yanlış tanıya yol açmaktadır. Yaşları 7 ve 10 arasında değişen herhangi bir doğrulama yapılmadan radyolojik olarak kist hidatik tanısı alarak tedavi görmüş üç hasta ile ilgili tecrübelerimizi paylaşmak istedik. Hastalarımızın ikisinde tanı andiferansiye embriyonal sarkoma (UES), diğerinde ise özofagus duplikasyonu olarak saptandı. İndirekt hemaglutination testi (IHA) iki hastada araştırılmış ve negatif olarak saptanmıştır. Tüm hastalara ise ampirik olarak albendazol tedavisine başlanmıştı. Ayırıcı tanı için tetkikler şüpheli olgularda mutlaka yapılmalıdır. IHA testi tanı için sınırlıda olsa yardımcı olabilir. Yanlış pozitif ya da negatif sonuçlar özellikle akciğer kistlerinde olmak üzere mevcuttur. Ayırıcı tanıda şüpheli olgularda perkütan biopsi önerilir.

Lymphatic filariasis is a major vector-borne parasitic disease. The global programme to eliminate lymphatic filariasis was launched in 1997 and currently over 570 million people are covered under it in 48 countries. Mass annual single-dose drug administration of diethylcarbamazine (DEC), co-administrated with albendazole for 5-6 years and mass distribution of diethylcarbamazine-fortified salt are the two strategies for elimination of filariasis.
Ascaris lumbricoides is a comman intestinal helminths in humans. It is a parasite which commonly affects society with a low socioeconomic status, especially in tropical and rural areas. Ascaris lumbricoides infestation can lead to serious complications because of the mobility of the worms. The parasite can cause a variety of complications like intestinal obstruction, perforation, biliary obstruction, pancreatitis, peritonitis, liver abscess, cholangiohepatitis, volvulus, and gangrene, etc. A 59-year-old female patient hospitalized with the diagnosis of mesenteric ischemia was operated on for jejunal resection. On the 6th postoperative day, a worm was noticed emerging through the nasogastric tube. Ascaris lumbricoides was determined as a result of the examination microbiology laboratory. The patient was treated successfully with one dose of albendazole 200 mg 1x2. Our case describes a clinical situation of ascariasis observed after jejunal resection and emphasizes the importance of remaining aware of this rare complication of ascariasis.
