Management & Therapy

At this point, the only major line of therapy for anisakiasis is the surgical removal of the nematode larvae. Symptoms may persist after the removal of the larvae if portions of larvae remain elsewhere in the body. It is also suggested that all raw fish should be eliminated from the patient's diet.
