Abstract

Angiostrongylus cantonensis, the causative agent of eosinophilic meningoencephalitis was reported from bandicoot rats in Kerala. The presence of A. cantonensis in bandicoot rats in Kerala is quite appalling as it is considered as an emerging pathogen. Since human rat contacts are ineluctable, chances of transmission are very high. Regular surveillance and awareness programmes are recommended.
