About Angiostrongylus cantonensis

The nematode Angiostrongylus cantonensis, or rat lungworm, is the most common cause of human eosinophilic meningitis. Humans are incidental hosts that become infected through ingestion of raw or undercooked infected rats (definitive host), snails, slugs, crabs, freshwater shrimps, or vegetables contaminated by slime from or parts of infected snails and slugs.
