Resumen

VALENCIA V., CLAUDIO; MUNOZ A., HÉCTOR  y  TORRES H., MARISA. Triquinosis: between the fear and the necessity of informing the source of infection. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2003, vol.20, n.2, pp.99-103. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-10182003000200003.

We present an epidemic of Trichinosis in a family group, acquired by the ingestion of brochettes. Although two patients had to be hospitalized because of the severity of symptoms of Trichinosis, other family members also presented symptoms but it was not feasible to obtain information about the source of the infection. The fear of punishment in addition to the lack of conscience of the importance of providing information of the origin of the infected meat, lead to these situations. We present this epidemic with the idea of encouraging the education on Trichinosis in the population.
