Humans (and other mammals) become infected by__________________________________________________ 6. L3 penetrate small intestine and migrate to subcutaneous tissues they molt twice to become adults. female is mature in about a year. Human Cases of Dracunculus medinensis : Human Cases of Dracunculus medinensis In endemic areas humans are constantly re-exposed and re-infected with this parasite High prevalence in _______________________ - high concentration of persons around water - warm, stagnant water is excellent habitat for ________________________ Human Cases of Dracunculus medinensis : Human Cases of Dracunculus medinensis In India, __________________ are common sites of infection. Infected water bearers enter water allowing female worms to release larvae They then fill water jars with drinking water containing infected copepods. Pathology of Dracunculus medinensis : Pathology of Dracunculus medinensis 1. Symptoms of dracunculiasis occur as worms migrate under the skin - female releases metabolic wastes that cause toxemia that causes a rash, nausea, diarrhea, and dizziness Pathology of Dracunculus medinensis : Pathology of Dracunculus medinensis Blister formation results in a large inflamed sore - blister ruptures when ______________________________ - secondary bacterial infections can occur through ruptured blister Blister formation results in a large inflamed sore - blister ruptures when ______________________________ - secondary bacterial infections can occur through ruptured blister 3. Some worms may migrate into deeper tissues such as the joints where they calcify causing arthritis Dracunculus medinensis : Dracunculus medinensis DIAGNOSIS - appearance of red blister followed by emergence of the female worm Treatment of Dracunculus medinensis : Treatment of Dracunculus medinensis TREATMENT - ______________________________________ is best known treatment must be done slowly as to not break worm Why? Slide62: TREATMENT: Today, surgery is commonly used. PREVENTION:A former president has been actively involved in the elimination of Guinea worm: A former president has been actively involved in the elimination of Guinea worm Since 1986, when an estimated 3.5 million people were infected, a campaign run by the ______________________________ UNICEF, WHO and the CDC has largely eliminated the disease, but it still occurs in 13 countries, all in Africa. Slide64: What is this symbol? What are these?Slide65: Medicine’s logo mark is based on Asclepius, a god of medicine, and snake around the stick Dracunculiasis was endemic along the Red Sea in the era of the Old Testament. Guinea worm was called "fiery snake". Actually, the snake around the Asclepius' stick is the Guinea worm! It can be supposed that in the Greek era, Asclepius was especially good at removing the fiery snake by using a stick. Dracunculus insignis : Dracunculus insignis Dracunculus insignis occurs in the ___________________________________________of wild mammals (canids, mink, raccoons, badgers, etc.) in the U.S. including Wisconsin. A few human cases of this species have been reported but the parasite is apparently nonpathogenic. See specimen on demo in lab You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
