The infection rate sounds quite high to me. I am not a doctor. But can anyone still put on the source of the information please?Fufu Fang 20:57, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

I found and added a citation for the epidemilogical info. It must have been the original source, as it matched it perfectly. We really need to get references for the rest of the article. --Joelmills 21:36, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

L3??? Outside the host you cannot found L3, the infect phase is L2. Please refer Rick Maizels for more information. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.55.172.69 (talk) 00:18, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Benign?[edit]

I was a little surprised to read this section of the article

Toxocariasis is always a benign, asymptomatic, and self-limiting disease, although brain involvement can cause brain damage, meningitis, encephalitis, or epilepsy.

The article seems to have been improved since 2008 and 2009. — Preceding unsigned comment added by RollandRFanatick (talkcontribs) 12:46, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

The references are mostly multiple repeats. They all need to be cleared up. —Preceding unsigned comment added by AlanWolfe (talkcontribs) 18:27, 9 August 2009 (UTC)
