background
Toxocariasis is a tissue helminthiasis due to nematode larvae belonging to the Toxocara genus. The most common agent is Toxocara canis (parasite of the dog), and sometimes Toxocara cati (parasite of the cat).Contamination of Man, accidental host, occurs by absorption embryonated eggs or larvae. In the first case, risk factors are ingestion of raw vegetables that grew on soils contaminated by domestic animal feces, poor hygiene (sand contamination in sandbox, children putting their contaminated hands to their mouth) or geophagia phenomenon. In the second case, contamination comes from larvae liberated during digestion of undercooked offal (mostly liver) (Chen J. et al., 2018). Complete parasitic cycle among human is not possible, and Toxocara remain in their larval form.
