Angiostrongylus cantonensis Is an Important Cause of Eosinophilic Meningitis in Southern Vietnam.
Clin Infect Dis. 2017 Jun 15; 64(12):1784-1787.CI

Abstract

We utilized polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to demonstrate that Angiostrongylus cantonensis was responsible for 67.3% of 55 cases of eosinophilic meningitis from a cohort of 1,690 adult patients with CNS infection at a tertiary hospital in southern Vietnam. Longer duration of illness, depressed consciousness, and peripheral blood eosinophilia were associated with PCR positivity.
