Anisakiasis (anisakidosis) refers to infection of people with larval stages of ascaridoid nematodes belonging to the family Anisakidae (and possibly also Raphidascarididae). These worms, commonly called anisakids, utilize aquatic mammals, piscivorous birds, aquatic reptiles, or fish as definitive hosts, and aquatic invertebrates and fish as intermediate or paratenic hosts.
