Abstract

Abstract.

Ocular gnathostomiasis is rather a rare food-borne zoonosis caused by infection with the larvae of several species of genus and is a representative ocular larva migrans syndrome. In our previous literature survey, we found 73 cases of ocular gnathostomiasis reported up to and including 2009, though additional sporadic cases have been reported in Asia and the Americas since that report. Here, we review 10 additional cases reported since 2010, and also update current findings regarding epidemiological and clinical features in affected patients.
