Which of the following is a feature of trichinoses:
|A||Diagnosis is established by finding larvae is skeletal muscle|
|E||All of the above|
a. Light infections may be asymptomatic. Intestinal invasion can be accompanied by gastrointestinal symptoms (diarrhea, abdominal pain, vomiting).
b. Larval migration into muscle tissues (one week after infection) can cause periorbital and facial edema, conjunctivitis, fever, myalgias, splinter hemorrhages, rashes, and peripheral eosinophilia.
c. Occasional life-threatening manifestations include myocarditis, central nervous system involvement, and pneumonitis. Larval encystment in the muscles causes myalgia and weakness, followed by subsidence of symptoms.
d. The suspicion of trichinellosis (trichinosis), based on history, clinical symptoms, and eosinophilia, can be confirmed by specific diagnostic tests, including antibody detection by ELISA, muscle biopsy, and microscopy.
