Raccoon Round Worm - Head Tilt

Cerebral larva migrans
Baylisascaris spp are round worms which live in the intestine of raccoons and skunks. A rabbit may acquire eggs from these worms by eating grasses, food, or bedding contaminated by feces. Larvae hatch from the eggs and migrate into the brain, where they live and grow and destroy brain tissue. There is no known cure for this invasion. Ivermectin probably does not penetrate the brain in sufficient quantities to kill the larvae, although it may kill them before they reach the brain.
