Clinical Information
  • A disease due to infection with trichinae, caused by consumption of undercooked meat containing trichinella.
  • A parasitic infection caused by larvae of worms of the genus trichinella. It is transmitted to humans by ingesting raw or undercooked meat from infected animals. Signs and symptoms include abdominal discomfort, nausea, vomiting, fever, diarrhea, headache, coughing, myalgias, arthralgias, and eye swelling.
  • An infection with trichinella. It is caused by eating raw or undercooked meat that is infected with larvae of nematode worms trichinella genus. All members of the trichinella genus can infect human in addition to trichinella spiralis, the traditional etiological agent. It is distributed throughout much of the world and is re-emerging in some parts as a public health hazard and a food safety problem.
