toxocara infection and its association with allergic manifestations.toxocara canis and toxocara cati are roundworms of dogs and cats that can also infect humans worldwide. although these parasites do not reach the adult stage in the human host the larvae migrate to different organs and can persist for many years. migration of larvae through the lungs may result in respiratory distress such as wheezing, coughs, mucous production and hyper-reactivity of the airways. epidemiological and experimental studies suggest that infection with this helminth contributes to t ...201122214330
