In brief: Toxocariasis
The clinical manifestation categories are visceral larva migrans (vlm) and ocular larva migrans (olm).
Vlm occurs primarily in young children and results in pneumonitis and hepatitis. Symptoms may include fever, loss of appetite, malaise, irritability, hepatomegaly, respiratory symptoms, and skin lesions. Olm commonly presents with unilateral visual impairment.
