A 4-year-old boy with a history of stomach pain, vomiting and abdominal distention eventually landed on the operating table where surgeons manually removed dozens of worms that had been living in his intestines. The boy, who was not named in the case report but was said to live in northwest Cameroon, had no history of deworming since birth, which is typically a common practice in that region.

“Ascariasis is the leading helminthic infection worldwide, with its peak prevalence noticed in children aged 2-10 years,” the authors wrote in the Journal of Medical Case Reports, which was published May 24. “Although mainly asymptomatic, chronic and heavy infestation could lead to severe complications such as malnutrition, poor physical and cognitive development, as well as intestinal obstruction.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Upon examination, the boy’s doctors recognized a small bowel obstruction, which prompted them to make a 0.8-inch cut. Surgeons then removed “bundles of Ascaris lumbricoides worms” manually and “by milking through the stoma.”
