Rat lungworm infection or Angiostrongyliasis is a parasitic infection that is relatively rare in the US; however, its effects on those infected can be quite serious. 

Last Friday, a CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report or (MMWR) looked at cases of CNS disease in the continental US for a 6 year period. 

Joining me on today’s podcast is Eugene Liu, MD. Dr Liu is the lead author of the MMWR article and he’s a CDC Epidemic Intelligence Officer with the Division of Parasitic Diseases and Malaria, Center for Global Health.
