Ascariasis Imaging: Pictorial Essay


Ascariasis Imaging: Pictorial Essay

Christoph F Dietrich et al. Z Gastroenterol.


Ascariasis is not widespread in Europe, and the knowledge on how to diagnose and treat the disease is limited to some specialists. On the other hand, clinicians are facing an increasing number of immigrants from high-prevalence countries and are, therefore, challenged to update in this field of infectious diseases. Here we present current knowledge on this infection in 2 parts. The first part discusses clinical features and hot topics in ascariasis, and the second part presents imaging features of ascariasis as a pictorial essay.
