Prognosis of Toxocariasis

Prognosis for Toxocariasis: In most cases, Toxocara infections are not serious, and many people, especially adults infected by a small number of larvae (immature worms), may not notice any symptoms. The most severe cases are rare, but are more likely to occur in young children, who often play in dirt, or eat dirt (pica) contaminated by dog or cat stool.

About prognosis:

The 'prognosis' of Toxocariasis usually refers to the likely outcome of Toxocariasis. The prognosis of Toxocariasis may include the duration of Toxocariasis, chances of complications of Toxocariasis, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Toxocariasis, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Toxocariasis. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
