Abstract Chronic cysticercosis bovina including the cysticercosis induce inflammatory cells to produce free radicals and synthesize carcinogenic toxins. The cells with genetic mutations proliferate in a disorganized manner, leading to the development of neoplasia.

The aim of the present study cysticercosis bovina to demonstrate the relation between cysticercosis and neoplasia.

Association between Cysticercosis and Neoplasia: A Study Based on Autopsy Findings

Patients autopsied were divided into 4 groups: Of autopsy reports cysticercosis bovina, 0. In groups CC and NC, the most common location of the parasite was the brain.


There was a predominance of three or more cysticerci in groups NC and CC. In the NC group, all had malignant neoplasms, and was predominance of benign neoplasm in NN group. The digestive cysticercosis bovina was the most frequent neoplasia.

By calculating odds ratio, rate of neoplasia in patients with cysticercosis bovina was 0. In conclusion, the demographic profile of patients with cysticercosis and neoplasia is similar cysticercosis bovina that of patients with cysticercosis alone.


cysticercosis bovina The incidence of cysticercosis and neoplasia was greater in older patients suggesting that immunosenescence may contribute to development of neoplasia promoted by cysticercosis.

Introduction Cysticercosis cysticercosis bovina a chronic parasitic inflammatory disease caused by the larval form of the Taenia solium parasite that elicits inflammatory reactions in both the tissues surrounding the parasite and distant tissues [ 12 ].

Cysticercosis is prevalent in several regions of Asia, Africa, and Latin America owing to poor sanitary conditions and socioeconomic conditions cysticercosis bovina 34 ].


Although in some studies evidence was not cysticercosis bovina for the association between infectious and parasitic cysticercosis bovina and neoplasias [ 5 ], chronic infections such as cysticercosis have been implicated as the cause of one-third of all newly detected neoplasias worldwide [ 6 — 8 ].

Chronic infections induce inflammatory cells to produce free radicals and synthesize carcinogenic toxins [ 7910 ]. Parasite-induced immunosuppression via evasive mechanisms, such as the differential expression of antigens, molecular mimicry of human leukocyte antigens, and alterations to the human immune system, is a potential oncogenic effect of cysticercosis [ 11 — 14 ].

The Scientific World Journal

Secretion of the metacestode factor by the parasite also contributes to nuclear alterations, such as those that occur in peripheral lymphocytes [ 1516 ]. Thus, cells with genetic mutations proliferate in a disorganized manner, leading to the possible development of neoplasia [ 17 ].

Considering these data, the aim of the present cysticercosis bovina was to demonstrate the correlation between cysticercosis and the development of neoplasia. Therefore, we also describe the disease characteristics and determine the epidemiologic profile of these patients.

Cases were selected and patients were cysticercosis bovina into 4 groups: Information was collected from the autopsy files regarding the following parameters:
