Schistosomiasis [bilharziasis] B65- >
A parasitic infection caused by flukes of the genus schistosoma.
Signs and symptoms include fever, abdominal pain, eosinophilia
and hepatosplenomegaly. If left untreated it may eventually
cause liver damage leading to cirrhosis, bladder cancer and
Infection with flukes (trematodes) of the genus schistosoma.
Three species produce the most frequent clinical diseases:
schistosoma haematobium (endemic in africa and the middle east),
schistosoma mansoni (in egypt, northern and southern africa, some
west indies islands, northern 2/3 of south america), and schistosoma
japonicum (in japan, china, the philippines, celebes, thailand, laos).
S. Mansoni is often seen in puerto ricans living in the United States.
Parasitic disease of tropical and subtropical countries; characterized
initially by fever, chills, and abdominal and lower back pain;
untreated patients may develop jaundice, liver cirrhosis, bladder
tumors, and kidney failure.
Echinococcosis B67- >
A parasitic infection caused by tapeworm larvae of echinococcus. It
affects livestock and humans. It is characterized by the formation
of hydatid cysts mainly in the liver, lungs, spleen, and kidneys.
Rupture of the cysts may lead to shock.
An infection caused by the infestation of the larval form of tapeworms
of the genus echinococcus. The liver, lungs, and kidney are the most
common areas of infestation.
Taeniasis B68- >
Type 1 Excludes
A parasitic infection caused by tapeworms of the genus taenia.
Humans are infected by eating undercooked or raw meat of infected
animals. It is usually an asymptomatic infection and patients may
become aware of the infection by noticing segments of the tapeworm
in their feces. If symptoms are present, they include nausea,
abdominal pain, indigestion, constipation, or diarrhea.
Infection with tapeworms of the genus taenia.
Cysticercosis B69- >
cysticerciasis infection due to larval form of Taenia solium
A parasitic infection caused by the larval form of taenia solium.
It is a disseminated infection affecting the central nervous system,
subcutaneous tissues, lungs, heart and liver. The most serious
complications result from infection of the brain parenchyma.
Patients may develop seizures, hydrocephalus, encephalopathy and
Infection with cysticercus, the larval form of the various tapeworms
of the genus taenia (usually t. Solium in man). In humans they penetrate
the intestinal wall and invade subcutaneous tissue, brain, eye, muscle,
heart, liver, lung, and peritoneum. Brain involvement results in
Dracunculiasis B72- >
guinea worm infection
infection due to Dracunculus medinensis
A parasitic infection caused by dracunculus medinensis. It is caused by
drinking water contaminated with water fleas. The larvae enter the body
through the intestine. Signs and symptoms include pain, edema,
blisters, and ulcers.
Infection with nematodes of the genus dracunculus. One or more worms
may be seen at a time, with the legs and feet being the most commonly
infected areas. Symptoms include pruritus, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea,
or asthmatic attacks.
Onchocerciasis B73- >
onchocerca volvulus infection
Filarial infection of the eyes transmitted from person to person by bites
of onchocerca volvulus-infected black flies. The microfilariae of onchocerca
are thus deposited beneath the skin. They migrate through various tissues
including the eye. Those persons infected have impaired vision and up to 20%
are blind. The incidence of eye lesions has been reported to be as high as 30%
in central america and parts of africa.
Infection with nematodes of the genus onchocerca. Characteristics include the
presence of firm subcutaneous nodules filled with adult worms, pruritus, and
Infection with nematodes of the genus onchocerca; characteristics include the
presence of firm subcutaneous nodules filled with adult worms, pruritus, and
Filariasis B74- >
Type 2 Excludes
tropical (pulmonary) eosinophilia NOS (J82)
Infections with nematodes of the superfamily filarioidea. The presence of
living worms in the body is mainly asymptomatic but the death of adult
worms leads to granulomatous inflammation and permanent fibrosis. Organisms
of the genus elaeophora infect wild elk and domestic sheep causing ischemic
necrosis of the brain, blindness, and dermatosis of the face.
Infections with nematodes of the superfamily filarioidea; presence of living
worms in the body is mainly asymptomatic but the death of adult worms leads to
granulomatous inflammation and permanent fibrosis; organisms of the genus
elaeophora infect wild elk and domestic sheep causing ischaemic necrosis of
the brain, blindness, and dermatosis of the face.
Trichinellosis B75- >
infection due to Trichinella species
A disease due to infection with trichinae, caused by consumption of
undercooked meat containing trichinella.
A parasitic infection caused by larvae of worms of the genus trichinella.
It is transmitted to humans by ingesting raw or undercooked meat from
infected animals. Signs and symptoms include abdominal discomfort, nausea,
vomiting, fever, diarrhea, headache, coughing, myalgias, arthralgias,
and eye swelling.
An infection with trichinella. It is caused by eating raw or undercooked
meat that is infected with larvae of nematode worms trichinella genus.
All members of the trichinella genus can infect human in addition to
trichinella spiralis, the traditional etiological agent. It is distributed
throughout much of the world and is re-emerging in some parts as a public
health hazard and a food safety problem.
Hookworm diseases B76- >
Infection of humans or animals with hookworms other than those caused by
the genus ancylostoma or necator, for which the specific terms
ancylostomiasis and necatoriasis are available.
Ascariasis B77- >
Infection by nematodes of the genus ascaris. Ingestion of infective eggs
causes diarrhea and pneumonitis. Its distribution is more prevalent in
areas of poor sanitation and where human feces are used for fertilizer.
Infection with nematodes of the genus ascaridia. This condition usually
occurs in fowl, often manifesting diarrhea.
Infections by nematodes, general or unspecified.
Strongyloidiasis B78- >
Type 1 Excludes
Infection with nematodes of the genus strongyloides. The presence of
larvae may produce pneumonitis and the presence of adult worms in the
intestine could lead to moderate to severe diarrhea.
Infections with nematodes of the order strongylida; includes
oesophagostomiasis, hook worm infection, trichostrongyloidiasis
and equine strongylosis.
Trichuriasis B79- >
Infection with nematodes of the genus trichuris, formerly called
Enterobiasis B80- >
Infection with nematodes of the genus enterobius; e. Vermicularis,
the pinworm of man, causes a crawling sensation and pruritus. This
condition results in scratching the area, occasionally causing
Infection with nematodes of the superfamily oxyuroidea.
Pinworms are parasites about the length of a staple that live in the
rectum. They are the most common worm infection in the United States.
Pinworms get inside the body when you swallow their eggs. While you
sleep, the female pinworms leave the intestines through the anus and
deposit eggs on nearby skin. This can cause intense anal itching.
Complications from pinworms are rare.people get pinworm infections
from one another. School-age children and preschoolers are most likely
to get pinworms. You do not get them from pets. If you have a mild case,
you may not need treatment. If you do need treatment, you and members of
your family usually take medicine, since pinworms are spread so easily.
Unspecified intestinal parasitism B82- >
Infections of the gastrointestinal system with parasites, commonly involving
protozoa or parasitic worms.
Infections of the intestines with parasites, commonly involving parasitic
worms. Infections with roundworms (nematode infections) and tapeworms
(cestode infections) are also known as helminthiasis.
