Which parasite causes the drunken crab syndrome?
Drunken crabs, because man gets infected with it by eating raw crabs. In Taiwan, these crabs are marinated in wine. Hence, the name!
Also called kejang.
Wow I didn't know this.
Nice to know, I was formulating all sort of weird possibilities for symptoms based on that.
I thought of a motion abnormality.. Since crabs can walk sidewise.
When I first came across this... Even I thought that the person would have a drunken gait or something!
Wonder how a crab would walk in cerebellar ataxia.. Considering they have a cerebellum.. Or not!
Lets talk about crabs!
Crabs is also slang for STD.
It's not slang, my bad. It's lice in pubic hair. Also known as crab lice.
CRAB is used for Multiple Myloma symptoms too.
C = Calcium (elevated),
R = Renal failure,
A = Anemia,
B = Bone lesions
And then there's Krabbe's disease, some sort of leucodystrophy.
Lame mnemonic for drunken crab.. Our teacher said -- Mr. Krabs gets drunk in Taiwan .. Because he found out.. His daughter "P"earl (paragonimus) is a man (westermanii)
