 Bauer,  IL,  2013.  Candiru—A  little  fish  with  bad  habits:  need  travel  health  professionals  worry?  A  review.  Journal  of  Travel  Medicine.  doi:  10.1111/jtm.12005
 

 Background.  Over  the  last  150  years,  a  little  South  American  ?sh  with  alleged  unsavory  habits  has  become  the  stuff  legends  are
 made  of.  With  growing  visitor  numbers  to  the  Amazon  basin,  the  question  of  whether  the  animal  poses  a  threat  to  the  many
 travelers  to  the  region  arises.
 
 Methods.  Scienti?c  literature  was  identi?ed  by  searching  MEDLINE,  ScienceDirect,  ProQuest,  and  Google  Scholar.  The
 reference  lists  of  all  obtained  sources  served  to  re?ne  the  search,  including  the  original  historical  writings  where  obtainable.
 Nonscienti?c  material  was  discovered  through  extensive  web  searches.
 
 Results.  First,  the  current  popular  understanding  of  the  ?sh  and  its  interaction  with  humans  are  presented  followed  by  an
 overview  of  the  historical  literature  on  which  this  understanding  is  based.  Next,the  ?sh  and  its  supposed  attraction  to  humans  are
 introduced.Finally,this  review  queries  the  evidence  current  medical  advice  utilizes  for  the  prevention  of  attacks  and  the  treatment
 of  unfortunate  hosts.
 
 Conclusions.  Until  evidence  of  the  ?sh’s  threat  to  humans  is  forthcoming,there  appears  to  be  no  need  for  considering  the  candiru
 in  health  advice  for  travelers  to  the  Amazon
