PHIL Image 5233
 
ID#:5233
Description:This diagram depicts the various stages in the life cycle of the nematode Trichinella spiralis.

Trichinellosis is acquired by ingesting meat containing cysts (encysted larvae) of Trichinella. After exposure to gastric acid and pepsin, the larvae are released from the cysts, invading the small bowel mucosa where they develop into adult worms.
