Three cases of parasites infected with the brain were recently confirmed in Hawaii


Last December, a tourist in Hawaii ate laughing balls – of course not realizing that there were parasites driving.

After accidentally swallowing the parasite (lung worm) larvae of the lung, which is hidden in the snail, humans are infected with the angiosystems of lyase or rat lung disease, in one of three cases the infection was recently confirmed by statement. May 23, Hawaii Ministry of Health.

As a result, the total number of confirmed cases of this parasitic infection increased to 10 in 2018 and became 5 in 2019.

These parasites usually lay eggs in the pulmonary arteries of mice – blood vessels flow from the heart to the lungs – and as soon as the eggs hatch, the resulting larvae can travel to the rat’s neck area; then the rodent will swallow it and remove it, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This parrot-filled manure becomes a snail and snail feed.

When hosts – humans – emerge and eat snails or raw snails or malnutrition, parasite larvae in the human brain can rise (they also do it in mice), which ripens in young people.

Some people infected with this parasite have no symptoms, while others develop a rare form of meningitis called eosinophilic meningitis. Symptoms include severe headaches, stiff neck, cold, tingling or pain and vomiting. Symptoms usually begin one to three weeks after exposure to parasites, according to the Hawaii Health Department.

In Hawaii, most people are exposed to parasites by eating snails or snails infected with larvae. But people can also be infected by eating raw material contaminated by snails or snails or even crabs, shrimp or frogs infected by parasites.
