Eosinophilic meningitis due to Angiostrongylus cantonensis in Germany.
J Travel Med. 2009 Jul-Aug; 16(4):292-4.JT

Abstract

We report a case of eosinophilic meningitis due to Angiostrongylus cantonensis in a patient who returned from Thailand. The presence of a compatible epidemiologic history and eosinophilia in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) lead to the diagnosis, which was confirmed by detection of specific antibodies. After treatment with albendazole and corticosteroids he recovered completely.
