Definition

Ancylostoma caninum, the canine hookworm, has been identified as a cause of human eosinophilic enteritis, especially in northeastern Australia; In this zoonotic infection, adult hookworms attach to the small intestine (where they may be visualized by endoscopy) and elicit abdominal pain and intense local eosinophilia; Treatment with mebendazole (100 mg twice daily for 3 days) or albendazole (400 mg once) is effective; Both of these animal hookworm species can cause cutaneous larva migrans
