Experimental infection of 2 species of laboratory rodents with Elaphostrongylus cervi larvae (Nematoda, Metastrongyloidea)



Experimental infection of 2 species of laboratory rodents with Elaphostrongylus cervi larvae (Nematoda, Metastrongyloidea)



Wiadomosci Parazytologiczne 35(2): 115-119



Eight-week-old guineapigs (17) and hamsters (17) were infected with 300 to 1000 E. cervi larvae from Helix pomatia. The animals were necropsied 4 and 24 h pi and at intervals between days 2-150 pi. Central nervous system (CNS) symptoms in the form of paresis and paralysis of limbs were observed only in guineapigs infected with 1000 larvae; these died within 75-117 days pi. Single male and female worms were present in the CNS and, in 2 animals, larvae were found in the lungs and mesenteries.
