linguatula serrata fröhlich, 6789--a case report of larvae among sheep and goats in egypt. 19883373061
the marrara syndrome: a hypersensitivity reaction of the upper respiratory tract and buccopharyngeal mucosa to nymphs of linguatula serrata.the marrara syndrome, like halazoun in lebanon, is a hypersensitivity reaction of the upper respiratory tract and buccopharyngeal mucosa to nymphs of linguatula serrata. the condition follows the consumption of marrara which consists of raw liver, lungs, trachea and rumen of goats and sheep infected with larvae of l. serrata. the adult worm is found in the nasal passages of dogs. sheep and goats are infected by eggs from infected dogs. a survey that included 240 adult individuals in a village of ...19969025980
serine protease activity demonstrated in the larval stage of the pentastomid linguatula serrata.linguatula serrata is a cosmopolitan parasite whose intermediate hosts are cattle, goats, sheep, and other ruminants. the adult form is found in the nasal airways, frontal sinuses, and tympanic cavity of canines and felines, and it produces hemorrhages and breathing difficulties. to elucidate if l. serrata produces enzymes that are capable of degrading tissues from the intermediate host, proteolytic activities in larval products were studied. using the zymography technique, one major protease wa ...200717136385
histological evidence for inoculative action of immature linguatula serrata in lymph nodes of intermediate host.the histopathological examination of 11 mesenteric lymph nodes from adult sheep infected with immature stages of linguatula serrata revealed acute and chronic lesions with the presence of bacterial colonies and yeast cells. bacteria were mainly present in acute, hemorrhagic, or necrotic lesions while yeast cells were seen mostly in the structure of chronic granulomas.200818363050
[the prevalence of linguatula serrata (fröhlich, 1789) nymphs in sheep in the van province].this research was carried out in order to detect the prevalence of linguatula serrata nymphs in lung and mesenteric lymph nodes of sheep in van province. for this purpose, mesenteric lymph nodes of 347 sheep and lung lymph nodes of 224 sheep were examined. l. serrata nymphs were found in 18 (5.19%) out of 347 sheep. l. serrata nymphs were not found in the lung lymph nodes of 224 sheep. in infected sheep, a total of 19 l. serrata nymphs were collected and two nymphs of l. serrata were seen in one ...200919367542
mesenteric and mediastinal lymph node infection with linguatula serrata nymphs in sheep slaughtered in kerman slaughterhouse, southeast iran.this research was carried out in order to detect the prevalence of nymphal stages of linguatula serrata in mediastinal and mesenteric lymph nodes of sheep slaughtered in kerman slaughterhouse, southeast of iran. for this purpose, mesenteric and mediastinal lymph nodes of 806 sheep of different sex and age were examined. one hundred and thirty out of 806 (16.1%) of the sheep were found positive for l. serrata infection. the infection rate increased with age (pā€‰<ā€‰0.001). prevalence of l. serrata n ...201120683656
prevalence, biology, pathology, and public health importance of linguatulosis of camel in iran.linguatula serrata is a cosmopolitan zoonotic parasite with its adult form occurring in the nasal and respiratory passages of canids as the definitive hosts, while its immature stages localize in the mesenteric lymph nodes, liver, spleen, lungs, and, rarely, in other organs, such as the ocular region of herbivorous intermediate hosts. humans can behave as both intermediate and final host and are infected by visceral and nasopharyngeal linguatulosis. consumption of infected, improperly cooked vis ...201121442154
