    Shamsi S, Butcher A. First report of human anisakidosis in Australia. Med J Aust. 2011;194:199-200 pubmed
    ..Microscopic examination showed that it was a Contracaecum species larva of the family Anisakidae. Anisakidosis should be considered in patients with gastrointestinal symptoms who have recently eaten seafood. ..
