is an important food-borne diseases and eosinophilic encephalitis in humans, caused by rat gut nematode (rat lungworm).
Colley and Fischer (2009) claimed that the African snail is host of nematodes of the species Angiostrongylus costaricensis Morera & Cespedes, 1971, which causes diseases to human (zoonoses) such as angiostrongyliasis or abdominal angiostrongylosis
. This disease can evolve to an intestinal perforation, peritonitis, abdominal bleeding and secondary to mesenteric ischemia, and pronounced eosinophilia (Prasad et al., 2004; Rodriguez et al., 2008), and may even lead to death.
The proven experience of societies such as the American Heartworm Society and more recently the European Society of Dirofilariasis and Angiostrongylosis
, among others, can contribute to achieving the ultimate goal of effective global disease control.
