TRICHINA [trichina] , common name for species of roundworm of the phylum Nematoda .

The species Trichinella spiralis is an important parasite, occurring in rats, pigs, and man, and is responsible for the disease trichinosis .


The small adult worms mature in the intestine of an intermediate host such as a pig.

Each adult female produces batches of up to 1,500 live larvae, which bore through the intestinal wall, enter the blood and lymphatic system, and are carried to striated muscle tissue........
