Trichinella disease is a parasitic disease caused by Tichinella spiralis and flowing with an increase in temperature, chills, expressed pain in muscles and swelling of the face and typical laboratory changes.
 
Trichinella spiralis relates to so-called helminths or nematodes. Trichinella there are several species, some of which are pathogenic for humans. Hosts are as humans and many domestic and wild animals. Usually a person is faced with infestations by eating poorly heat-treated pork but not least and registered cases of infection from wild game. Animals in turn are infected by eating infected rodents most often, but not only. In the meat contained encapsulated cysts of the parasite. When falling into the intestinal tract under the action of proteolytic enzymes released from the cysts are parasites, and for a short period of time they become sexually mature forms. Is sexual reproduction and birth of live larvae. The latter are able to pass leeks intestinal mucosa and lymph and blood spread throughout the body. Typically, however, they are localized in the muscles of the host cell where it is encapsulated.
