The Chinese woman with the son have eaten a crude centipede and were hospitalized


The unusual diet of the Chinese family has helped to prove that centipedes can be owners of a helminth of Angiostrongylus cantonensis. The South China Morning Post edition with reference to the publication in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene magazine reports about it. Discovery has been made after the 78-year-old woman and her 46-year-old son from rural areas of the Province of Guangdong have come to Chzhutszyansky hospital in Guangzhou. Both complained of headaches and drowsiness which overcame them several weeks in a row. Analyses have shown that symptoms aren't caused by a viral or bacterial infection. After that physicians have studied their cerebrospinal fluid and have noticed the increased maintenance of eozinofilny granulocytes. It could demonstrate to infection with parasites. As it has become clear, problems are caused by the rat pulmonary Angiostrongylus cantonensis worm. Usually he lives in pulmonary arteries of rats, and his intermediate owner are snails and other mollusks. Was considered that people can catch him as a result of consumption of crude mollusks and also dirty water or vegetables. Patients admitted that fir-trees of crude centipedes. "We seldom hear about people who eat crude centipedes — the researcher of office of neurology of Chzhutszyansky hospital Linley Lu says. — However these two believed that crude centipedes are useful to health". Materials on teme00:04 — on July 7 "Our old friends of the worm" They infect themselves with viruses, bacteria and parasites. All for the sake of a naukimatera and to the son have registered anthelminthic means альбендазол. In three weeks they were healthy. Researchers have bought 20 centipedes in the same market in Guangdong where they were bought by mother and the son who have picked up a parasite. In seven of them have found Angiostrongylus cantonensis DNA. Before was considered that centipedes aren't carriers of these worms. During the next experiment of centipedes have infected with the same parasite. As a result all 20 individuals have died. It can demonstrate that centipedes can be only the temporary owner for Angiostrongylus cantonensis. Getting into a brain of the person, Angiostrongylus cantonensis, causes the encephalomeningitis leading to violation of work of the central nervous system, and in hard cases — by death.
