Abstract: A case of intravitreal angiostrongyliasis associated with eosinophilic meningitis is reported. An intact rat lung worm, Angiostrongylus cantonensis, was removed intact from the eye of a 34-year-old Thai man whose 10-day history of eye complaints began following his ingestion of raw snails, known to be commonly the hosts of third-stage larvae of this parasite. His treatment and the possible routes of invasion of the human eye are discussed. © 1971.
