An epidemic of trichinelliasis in Haute-Garonne after eating an infected wild boar

Bulletin de la Societe Francaise de Parasitologie 4(1): 55-57

In a village near Saint-Gaudens, France, 26 guests feasted on a locally killed wild boar. 13 became infected with Trichinella spiralis. 8 to 15 days after the meal, 3 patients were admitted to hospital with fever, diarrhoea, severe myalgia, oedema of the face and limbs, asthenia and rapid weight loss. 5 persons had minor clinical symptoms and 5 were asymptomatic (infection was demonstrated by eosinophilia and serology).
