Abstract

A fatal case of visceral larva migrans in which eosinophilic meningoencephalitis was the cause of death and serologic studies were negative for infection by T. canis. Further investigation established that this fatal neurologic infection was caused by the common raccoon ascarid Baylisascaris procyonis.
