  • Ancylostoma in dogs in the Caribbean: a review and study from St. Kitts, West Indies. [Review]
    Parasit Vectors. 2022 Apr 21; 15(1):139.Kim J, Lucio-Forster A, Ketzis JK
  • CONCLUSIONS: There was no indication that hookworm prevalence has changed over time in the Caribbean, and there were no obvious differences between owned and unowned dogs or free-roaming and confined dogs. The data from St. Kitts were on par with positivity rates from the other islands within the last 10 years and reflective of the impact that veterinary care, including anthelmintic treatment, is expected to have on parasites in pets. There is a clear need to expand the available data for the region and improve control programs for Ancylostoma infections to protect both canine and human health.
  • A Unique Case of Cutaneous Larva Migrans and Asymptomatic Löeffler's Syndrome. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2021 Jun; 13(6):e15960.Ng J, Lee D, Kryzstofiak M
  • Cutaneous larva migrans is a fairly common parasitic skin disease typically found in more tropical climates such as the southeastern United States, with the most commonly encountered organism known as the hookworm, Ancylostoma braziliense. Löeffler's syndrome is a rare pulmonary manifestation with vague diagnostic criteria but frequently characterized by diffuse migratory pulmonary infiltrates on…
  • Cutaneous larva migrans in a young child following circumrotation as a cultural ritual. [Case Reports]
    BMJ Case Rep. 2021 Jan 25; 14(1)Thadchanamoorthy V, Dayasiri K
  • Cutaneous larva migrans is an acquired, self-limited infestation caused by cat hookworm, Ancylostoma braziliense, and dog hookworm, A. caninum The disease is acquired by direct contact with contaminated soil. Circumrotation is a religious ritual practised by devotees of Hinduism as a fulfilment of vows taken at the shrine and involves rolling over with uncovered upper body on the sand over a dist…
  • High-throughput multiplex qPCRs for the surveillance of zoonotic species of canine hookworms. [Journal Article]
    PLoS Negl Trop Dis. 2020 06; 14(6):e0008392.Massetti L, Colella V, … Traub RJ
  • The canine hookworms Ancylostoma braziliense, Ancylostoma ceylanicum, Ancylostoma caninum and Uncinaria stenocephala are not only capable of producing morbidity and mortality in dogs but are also neglected tropical zoonoses. Each hookworm species differs considerably in its geographical distribution, life cycle, biology, pathogenic impacts on both canine and human hosts, zoonotic potential, and r…
  • Cutaneous Larva Migrans Over Penis. [Case Reports]
    Urology. 2020 Jun; 140:e6-e7.Sil A, Panigrahi A, … Chakraborty S
  • Cutaneous larva migrans (CLM) also termed as "creeping eruption," is a parasitic infestation produced by burrowing of the larva of Ancylostoma braziliense. The larva enters intact or abraded skin following exposure with soil contaminated with faeces. Solitary tracts involving feet, hands, buttocks, and genitalia are usually encountered. Although CLM is an endemic tropical disease, in this era of …
  • Autochthonous Cutaneous Larva Migrans in France and Europe. [Case Reports]
    Acta Derm Venereol. 2019 Jul 01; 99(9):805-808.Del Giudice P, Hakimi S, … Hubiche T
  • Cutaneous larva migrans is a dermatitis, typically acquired in warm tropical or sub-tropical countries, caused by migration of the larvae of nematodes (hookworm; mainly Ancylostoma braziliense and, occasionally, Ancylostoma caninum or Uncinaria stenocephala), which are parasitic on animals such as cats and dogs, into the patient's skin. The larvae penetrate the skin after contact with infected so…
  • Molecular identification of zoonotic hookworms in dogs from four counties of Kenya. [Journal Article]
    J Helminthol. 2019 Feb 28; 94:e43.Mulinge E, Njenga SM, … Romig T
  • All canine hookworms are known to be zoonotic, causing infections ranging from transient skin irritations to prolonged 'creeping eruptions', eosinophilic enteritis and even patent intestinal infections. There is little information on canine hookworm species and their public health significance in sub-Saharan Africa. This study determined the prevalence and species of hookworms in dogs from differ…
  • Standardization and application of a modified RFLP-PCR methodology for analysis of polymorphisms linked to treatment resistance in Ancylostoma braziliense. [Journal Article]
    Parasit Vectors. 2018 Oct 09; 11(1):540.Furtado LFV, Magalhães JGS, Rabelo ÉML
  • CONCLUSIONS: It is not known whether the presence of the mutation in codon 198 of the beta-tubulin gene of A. braziliense has importance for this parasite. However, based on studies of other helminths, it is possible that this polymorphism is directly related to the resistance to benzimidazoles. This may be a major concern, since this nematode has considerable relevance as a parasite of canids and felids and as one of the agents of cutaneous larva migrans in humans. Standardized methodologies will be useful for screening for polymorphisms in the beta-tubulin gene of canine hookworms in a broader population. The method could also be adapted for the analysis of other SNPs in other nematode species.
  • Molecular identification of zoonotic hookworm species in dog faeces from Tanzania. [Journal Article]
    J Helminthol. 2019 May; 93(3):313-318.Merino-Tejedor A, Nejsum P, … Olsen A
  • The presence and distribution of various species of canine hookworms in Africa are poorly known. The main objective of this study, therefore, was to identify the hookworm species present in canine faecal samples from Morogoro, Tanzania, using molecular techniques. Faecal samples from 160 local dogs were collected and hookworm positive samples processed to recover larvae for further molecular char…
  • Bullous cutaneous larva migrans: case series and review of atypical clinical presentations. [Case Reports]
    G Ital Dermatol Venereol. 2017 Oct; 152(5):516-519.Veraldi S, Çuka E, … Vaira F
  • Hookworm-related cutaneous larva migrans (HRCLM) is caused by the penetration and migration in the epidermis of larvae of Ancylostoma braziliense and Ancylostoma caninum. It is characterized by slightly raised and erythematous tracks, located especially on the feet. These tracks may be single or multiple, serpiginous or linear, ramified and intertwined, accompanied by pruritus. Atypical clinical …
  • The impact of global climate change on the spread of parasitic nematodes [Journal Article]
    Ann Parasitol. 2017; 63(1):15-20.Okulewicz A
  • Climate changes may influence the frequency, intensity and geographical distribution of parasites, directly affecting their dispersive stages in the environment (eggs, larvae) and, indirectly, the larvae living mainly in invertebrate intermediate hosts. In biologically diverse nematodes climate warming contributes to the increase in the range of distribution, colonization of new hosts and modific…

    Recent Pat Inflamm Allergy Drug Discov. 2017; 11(1):2-11.Leung AKC, Barankin B, Hon KLE
  • CONCLUSIONS: The pruritic serpiginous track is pathognomonic. Oral ivermectin is the treatment of choice.
  • Cutaneous Larva Migrans in Early Infancy. [Journal Article]

  • [Cutaneous larva migrans after a trip to the Caribean]. [Case Reports]
    Rev Chilena Infectol. 2014 Jun; 31(3):346-8.García-Fernández L, Calderón M
  • Cutaneous larva migrans is a parasitic disease caused by Ancylostoma braziliense and Ancylostoma caninum larvae, which is transmitted by contact with sand infested with these parasites. Dogs and cats are the definitive hosts. This parasitic disease is endemic in the Caribbean, Africa, Australia, and Asia. We present the case of a 27-year-old woman, who developed skin lesions compatible with cutan…
  • First report of Ancylostoma ceylanicum in wild canids. [Journal Article]
    Int J Parasitol Parasites Wildl. 2013 Dec; 2:173-7.Smout FA, Thompson RC, Skerratt LF
  • The parasitic nematode Ancylostoma ceylanicum is common in dogs, cats and humans throughout Asia, inhabiting the small intestine and possibly leading to iron-deficient anaemia in those infected. It has previously been discovered in domestic dogs in Australia and this is the first report of A. ceylanicum in wild canids. Wild dogs (dingoes and dingo hybrids) killed in council control operations (n …
  • Survey of helminth parasites of cats from the metropolitan area of Cuiabá, Mato Grosso, Brazil. [Journal Article]
    Rev Bras Parasitol Vet. 2013 Apr-Jun; 22(2):201-6.Ramos DG, Scheremeta RG, … Pacheco Rde C
  • Besides presenting zoonotic potential, helminths of cats are responsible for gastrointestinal, hepatic, and pulmonary diseases. In order to identify the helminthic fauna, prevalence, mean intensity of parasitism (MIP), and mean abundance population (MAP), 146 cats from the metropolitan area of Cuiabá, Midwestern Brazil, were necropsied. In 98 these animals, 12 species of helminths were identified…
