A woman who recently came home from a tropical vacation now has abdominal pain and diarrhea. Her blood test results how an elevated eosinophil level. Which of the following organisms is most likely to cause her illness?
I think it's C but want to make sure. I'm torn between A and C.
According to the Merck Manuals on eosinophilia,
"...Causes and associated disorders are myriad but often represent an allergic reaction or parasitic infection...."
Draw your own conclusions.
Hint: the woman returned from a tropical vacation.
