Caption: Baylisascariasis life cycle. Diagram showing the life cycle of the parasitic nematode (roundworm) Baylisascaris procyonis, one of the causes of baylisascariasis. B. procyonis's definitive host is the North American raccoon (Procyon lotor). Humans become infected through ingesting eggs from the environment. This occurs most often through children playing in dirt. Once ingested the larvae migrate through the central nervous system, eyes, organs and muscles. Symptoms depend on the tissues affected.
