Raccoon Roundworm

What is raccoon roundworm?

Raccoon roundworm is a type of worm that infects raccoons and can cause serious disease in humans that accidentally come into contact with it. The adult worms live in the intestines of raccoons and deposit eggs which can contaminate soil around raccoon latrines (see the brochure). Humans, particularly children, can become infected by coming into contact with roundworm eggs from contaminated soil.
