"Angiostrongylus cantonesis" only yields 465 Google hits; it offers "Angiostrongylus cantonensis" as a suggestion, which yields 33,000+ hits. Therefore, this seems to be a typo. This article has "cantonesis" in its title, but the fifth word is "cantonensis." Next: there is no article for Angiostrongylus cantonensis, but a number of articles link to Metastrongylidae with the text as cantonensis. Just some research. — HelloAnnyong (say whaaat?!) 04:20, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

I got help and had it moved with the previous spelling redirecting it here. This article needs a lot of clean up even as far as basic grammar. I suspect it was a cut-paste job and will need proper references. I received basic education in parasites years ago, but this is outside my specialty.--MartinezMD (talk) 16:52, 18 November 2008 (UTC)


I oppose the proposed merge (the conditions are usually kept separate from the pathogens here) but I'd support moving most the clinical content to the angiostrongyliasis article. --Arcadian (talk) 00:31, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

That's a support for the merge, as that is the reason I added the tag. "Merge" does not mean redirect. The clinical content wasn't located in one section, so there was nowhere to add the merge tag except at the top. Since neither articles linked to each other, it seems that both authors were unaware of their respective pages, and most of the content was added to this page, hence the merge request. I previously commented on the WikiProject Medicine talk page. So, you are supporting my original request. Viriditas (talk) 03:07, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Since the merge tag was so confusing, I'm changing it to {{Move portions}}. Viriditas (talk) 05:58, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
I think I see the problem. You were responding to an old discussion from 2007 titled, "redirect". I've moved your response to a new section titled appropriately. I think we are both on the same page now. Viriditas (talk) 06:05, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Sorry for the confusion. I agree now that our positions are the same. --Arcadian (talk) 06:57, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
