Aspects of Toxocara epidemiology: human toxocarosis


, : Aspects of Toxocara epidemiology: human toxocarosis. Critical Reviews in Microbiology 23(3): 215-231

The transmission of human toxocariasis as caused by Toxocara canis and T. cati is reviewed. Because excreted ova require at least 2 weeks for embryonation, there is no relationship between infection and direct exposure to dogs and cats.
