Ocular Larva Migrans News and Research

Ocular larva migrans is a rare inflammatory condition of the eye caused by local reactions to the larva of Toxocara species. These are roundworms which infest dogs and cats as their definitive hosts. Toxocara canis (T. cani), which infests dogs, is more commonly implicated than Toxocara cati (T. cati) because dogs deposit their feces in a more indiscriminate manner.
