Summaries for Dracunculiasis

About this section
Disease Ontology:10 A parasitic helminthiasis infectious disease that involves parasitic infection by the larvae of the nematode Dracunculus medinensis, which are transmitted to humans by drinking water containing copepods infected with the larvae. The female, which contains larvae, burrows into the deeper connective tissues or adjacent to long bones or joints of the extremities. The worm emerges as a whitish filament in the center of a painful ulcer, accompanied by inflammation and frequently by secondary bacterial infection.

MalaCards based summary: Dracunculiasis, also known as guinea worm disease, is related to schistosomiasis and onchocerciasis, and has symptoms including skin rash, pruritus and diarrhea. An important gene associated with Dracunculiasis is SETDB1 (SET Domain Bifurcated 1), and among its related pathways are Naphthalene metabolism and AhR pathway (WikiPathways). The drug thiabendazole has been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, bone and breast.

CDC:2 The program has made great strides from 3.5 million cases annually in the mid-1980s to 126 cases in 2014.  In 2015, only 22 cases were reported worldwide—a 83% reduction in cases from the previous year. Global eradication is within reach.
