Eosinophilic Meningitis Due to Infection With Paragonimus Kellicotti

Nathan C Bahr et al. Clin Infect Dis. .

Abstract

Paragonimus kellicotti is an emerging pathogen in the United States with 19 previously reported cases, most in Missouri. Pulmonary symptoms with eosinophilia are most common, though 1 case did involve the central nervous system with few symptoms. We describe the first 2 cases of eosinophilic meningitis due to Paragonimus kellicotti.

Keywords: meningitis; paragonimus; trematoda; eosinophilia.
