A new case of abdominal angiostrongyliasis



Revista do Instituto de Medicina Tropical de Sao Paulo 24(4): 252-256



A 5-year-old girl came to hospital in Brazil with a solid swelling-like neoplasm in the right iliac fossa. There was 52% eosinophilia. The terminal ileum and caecum were excised surgically, both thickened with inflammation and necrosis. Worms of Angiostrongylus costaricensis were found in the arteries, and ova were surrounded with granulomatous reaction. The child made a good recovery.
