Medical Definition of Trichinelliasis

1. Trichinosis is an intestinal and tissue infection of humans and other mammals caused by the nematode Trichinella spiralis. Infection occurs through the consumption of infected meat (usually domestic pork) that carries the encysted larvae of T. Spiralis. Common symptoms include: diarrhoea, muscle pains, fever, dehydration and swelling around the eyes. Myocarditis (heart infection), pneumonitis (lung infection) and encephalitis (brain infection) can also occur in advanced cases. (19 Jan 1998)
