RGD DISEASE ONTOLOGY - ANNOTATIONS

RGD uses the Human Disease Ontology (DO, https://disease-ontology.org/) for disease curation across species. RGD automatically downloads each new release of the ontology on a monthly basis. Some additional terms which are required for RGD's curation purposes but are not currently covered in the official version of DO have been added. As corresponding terms are added to DO, these custom terms are retired and the DO terms substituted in existing annotations and subsequently used for curation.

Definition:Infection with CYSTICERCUS, the larval form of the various tapeworms of the genus Taenia (usually T. solium in man). In humans they penetrate the intestinal wall and invade subcutaneous tissue, brain, eye, muscle, heart, liver, lung, and peritoneum. Brain involvement results in NEUROCYSTICERCOSIS.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: cysticercoses;   intestinal taenia solium infection;   pork tapeworm infection;   tapeworm infection: intestinal taenia solum;   tenia solium infectious disease
 primary_id: MESH:D003551
 xref: GARD:8194;   ICD10CM:B69;   ICD9CM:123.1;   NCI:C34520
