Studies on the distribution of Trichinella spiralis in selected muscles of experimentally infected swine have indicated that the diaphragm generally contained the highest concentration of T. spiralis, followed by tongue, masseter, gluteal and intercostol muscles. Numerous tissues and organs devoid of striated muscle were also invaded by trichina larvae. Infected tissues were obtained from the circulatory, digestive, reproductive, nervous, endocrine, and excretory systems.
