Juvenile eosinocytic meningo-encephalitis (Toxocara infection?)

Juvenile eosinocytic meningo-encephalitis (Toxocara infection?)

Orvosi Hetilap 125(47): 2871-2873

The case history is reported of a 7-year-old child from a rural area of Hungary, who was admitted to hospital with eosinophilic meningo-encephalitis, following chickenpox. The disease was characterized by fever, headache, giddiness, meningeal symptoms and stem ataxia, but the patient recovered without residual signs. In addition to monocytes and lymphocytes, an unexpectedly high number of eosinophils was present in the cerebrospinal fluid. Serological tests revealed recent T. canis infection.
