In most human populations, a small number of those tested have positive EIA titers that apparently reflect the prevalence of asymptomatic toxocariasis. In younger dogs, the larvae migrate through the lungs, bronchial tree, and esophagus; adult worms develop and oviposit in the small intestine. Once infected, a female dog will usually harbor sufficient larvae to subsequently infect all of her litters, even if she never again encounters an infection. Many human infections are asymptomatic, with only eosinophilia and positive serology.
In this parasitic disease the diagnosis does not rest on identification of the parasite.
The currently recommended serologic test for toxocariasis is enzyme immunoassay EIA with larval stage antigens extracted from embryonated eggs or released in vitro by cultured infective larvae. De Savigny D, Tizard I.
The latter, Toxocara excretory-secretory TES antigens, are preferable to larval extracts because they are convenient to produce and because an absorption-purification step is not required for obtaining maximum specificity. Regular deworming by a veterinarian is important to stop canine re-infections, especially if the dog is frequently outdoors. The cysts can reactivate in pregnant females to infect puppies either through the placenta in utero or the mammary glands in colostrum and milk.

Four modes of infection are associated with this species. Toxocariasis is caused by larvae of Toxocara canis dog roundworm and less frequently of T. ABSTRACT A cross-sectional study was carried out in the Waimiri and Atroari settlements in Balbina, between July and Octoberwith the aims of estimating the frequency of the antibody anti- Toxocara canis of the IgG class and studying the epidemiological and sociocultural variables.
Toxocara canis also known as dog roundworm is worldwide-distributed helminth parasite of dogs and other canids. In older dogs, patent infections can also occur, but larval encystment in tissues is more common. Among the individuals who had contact in their homes with puppies, Enterobius vermicularis Enterobiasis Pinworm. Since the larvae do not develop into adults in humans, a stool examination would not detect any Toxocara eggs.
