Trichinosis is world-wide in distribution, occurring in tropical, temperate, and polar regions. Although incidence of the disease appears to be declining in most regions, it is still widely distributed in Europe and is increasing in many parts of Africa. In recent years, the incidence of trichinosis in the United States also has increased. This article reviews the nature of immunity to trichinosis.
