Study group discussion: Chionablepsia and Anisakiasis

Learnt some new words today!
Chionablepsia - its inflammation of eyes due to UV rays!

What a word. I can't even pronounce it!

And this word has no -itis😃

They should've come up with uv-eye-itis instead! :P


One more!

Anisakiasis !

A parasitic infection by anisakid (nematodes)

What does this parasite infect?

Stomach walls!

Caused by ingestion of larvae...say, by consuming infected squid or fish

Since it affects the stomach walls, wouldn't bleeding or abdominal pain be most prominent symptoms?

Nothing special ....abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea.

Oh alright!
