1/8. Acute intestinal anisakiasis in spain: a fourth-stage anisakis simplex larva.

    A case of acute intestinal anisakiasis has been reported; a nematode larva being found in the submucosa of the ileum of a woman in Jaen (spain). The source of infection was the ingestion of raw Engraulis encrasicholus. On the basis of its morphology, the worm has been identified as a fourth-stage larva of anisakis simplex. In spain, this is the ninth report of human anisakiasis and also probably the first case of anisakiasis caused by a fourth-stage larva of A. simplex.

2/8. Intestinal anisakiasis mimicking intestinal obstruction.

    We report one case of acute abdomen after the ingestion of raw or undercooked fish containing nematode larvae of the genus anisakis. early diagnosis is very important as it could prevent unnecessary surgical procedures since the symptoms of intestinal anisakiasis may mimic other illnesses such as appendicitis, ileitis or peritonitis. We suggest that anisakiasis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with acute abdomen.

3/8. A case of acute gastric anisakiasis provoking severe clinical problems by multiple infection.

    Acute gastric anisakiasis with multiple anisakid larvae infection is reported. A 68-year-old woman residing in Busan, korea, had epigastric pain with severe vomiting about 5 hours after eating raw anchovies. Four nematode larvae penetrating the gastric mucosae in the great curvature of the middle body and fundus were found and removed during gastro-endoscopic examination. Another one thread-like moving larva was found in the great curvature of upper body on the following day. On the basis of their morphology, the worms were identified as the 3rd stage larvae of anisakis simplex. This case is acute gastric anisakiasis provoking severe clinical problems by the multiple infection and the greatest number of anisakid larvae found in a patient in korea.

4/8. Acute abdomen due to small bowel anisakiasis.

    The popularity in Western countries of dishes based on raw fish has led to an increased incidence of anisakiasis, a human parasitic disease caused by the ingestion of live anisakid larvae. The entire digestive tract may be involved, but the stomach and the small intestine are the most frequently affected sites. We report a case of acute abdomen due to anisakis simplex infection that caused small bowel obstruction.

5/8. anisakiasis.

    Larval forms of nematodes of the Anisakidae family (cod or herring worms) can cause disease in people who eat raw or undercooked seafood. These nematodes are widespread along the eastern and western coasts of the united states, and the larvae can be found in fresh fish sold in any grocery store. Luminal infestation causes few symptoms. Invasive anisakiasis may be acute or chronic and may involve the stomach or the small intestine.

6/8. Omental anisakiasis: a rare mimic of acute appendicitis.

    The authors recently encountered a patient with omental anisakiasis who presented with features of acute appendicitis and who made an uneventful recovery following resection of an inflammatory omental mass containing the larva(e). anisakiasis refers to infestation of humans by species of marine nematode larvae belonging to the subfamily Anisakinae. Although this condition is rarely reported in the united states, it has been well described both in Holland and in the Orient. Several publications in the Japanese literature have detailed the morphology of the parasite and the clinical symptoms of infestation. The source of infestation is most often raw or uncooked fish, the latter widely enjoyed as a foodstuff in the Orient, but less popular in the united states. With the growing popularity of "sushi" bars and the increasing numbers of Americans developing a taste for raw fish, this condition may become more prevalent in the future.

7/8. Anisakidosis: report of 25 cases and review of the literature.

    Anisakidosis (previously known as anisakiasis) is a disease caused by the accidental ingestion of larval nematodes (anisakis and sometimes Pseudoterranova) in raw fish. Two groups of patients are studied: 5 clinical cases and 20 serological diagnoses. 55 French cases are already published. Most of them complained of acute symptoms, which occurred within 12 h of eating the seafood meal--epigastric pain, occlusion, diffuse abdominal pain, and appendicitis. Larvae were attached to the gastric mucosa (25 cases), including an inflammatory response (erythema, oedema ulceration). Diagnosis of anisakiasis is made by gastroscopy which allows removal of the worms, and cures the patients. In gastro-intestinal tract x-rays, oedema in the mucosa, pseudo tumour formation, and filling defects (worm) were observed. In chronic infections, cases with intermittent feelings of ill health and abdominal pain, lasting from several weeks to months, were misdiagnosed as another intestinal disease. Positive serological reactions are helpful, and surgery is necessary for resection of the lesion; diagnosis is made histologically by an eosinophilic granuloma, and the presence of a larva with Y shaped lateral cords. Infestation rate is high in fishes: cod (88%), rock fish (86%), herring (88%), salmon, mackerel. Public health education should discourage the eating of raw fish. Thorough cooking to 70 degrees C or adequate freezing to -20 degrees C for 72 h are the best preventive measures. Such legislation is only in force in the netherlands, where cases have decreased dramatically.

8/8. Noncardiac chest pain due to acute gastric anisakiasis.

    This paper described the first confirmed case of acute anginalike chest pain caused by gastric anisakiasis. A 55-year-old male, with a history of a sudden onset of chest pain and also a history of eating raw mackerel and tuna 9 hr prior to the onset of chest pain, was found upon endoscopy to have an imbedded parasite in the mucosal lining of his stomach. The chest pain disappeared after the endoscopic removal of larva. endoscopy is highly recommended at the earliest possible time for patients who are suspected to have acute gastric anisakiasis.
