Ascaris

Ascaris Worm

 

Ascaris is a larger cousin of the Hookworm. This worm is a giant sized roundworm that can reach as long as 40cm. It can be found in the small and large intestine. Ascaris is in fact the parasite most familiar to us humans.

25% percent of the world's population is infected. Ascaris, or round worms kills up to 20,000 people
a year with sickness, fever, and intestinal blockages.

Roundworms:

Roundworms (or Nematodes) are long, thread-like parasitic worms.  They look similar to an earthworm and can produce 200,000 eggs daily.

Approximately 1.8 million people are infected, making it the most common worldwide.

The infection is mainly spread by a lack of adequate hygienic and sanitation methods:

  • failing to wash hands before eating or before touching the mouth
  • failing to wash fruit and vegetables before eating
  • eating raw or uncooked meat or seafood
  • playing or working in soil that is contaminated
  • having pets that are infected with roundworms and inhaling the larvae.  From the lungs, the larvae move into the upper lung passages and airway.  They are then swallowed and returned to the intestine.

Once the larvae are in the intestine, they can mature, reproduce and release up to 20,000 eggs per day.

The most frequent symptom from roundworms is upper abdominal discomfort: pain, cramps and nausea.  Other symptoms are: asthma, eye pain, insomnia, and rashes due to the secretions or waste products from the worms.

The overgrowth of roundworms can lead to intestinal blockage or rupture. The patient may require nasogastric suction to deal with the intestinal blockage. In severe cases, surgery may be required.

Pinworms

Itching around the anal or vaginal areas are the most common pinworm symptoms. Suspect a  pinworm infection if your child shows night time itching in these areas.

Symptoms also include:

  • poor appetite
  • teeth grinding
  • hyperactivity
  • nervousness
  • irritability
  • insomnia
  • bed wetting
  • stomach aches
  • nausea and vomiting.

Sometimes the anal area becomes infected with bacteria because of the constant scratching. Pinworms are also often found within the appendix and have been associated with acute and chronic inflammation.

Adult pinworms inhabit the cecum and other portions of the large and small intestines.

Female worms crawl down the intestines and pass out of the anus to lay their eggs around the anal region at night. Occasionally, they can be found on the first stool in the morning.

One female can deposit over 15,000 eggs that become infective immediately or within a few hours.

Tapeworms

 

There are several species of tapeworm that can infect human beings. However there are three most common ones: the pork tapeworm (Taenia solium), the beef tapeworm (Taenia saginata) and the fish tapeworm (Diphyllobothrium latum).  Other varieties that infect humans are the dwarf tapeworm (Hymenolepis nana) and the rodent tapeworm (Hymenolepis diminuta).  Although usual hosts of the rodent tapeworm are the rats, mice and other rodents, this type find way into the body of a human being through meal worms or grain beetles that infest our food.

Tapeworm symptoms in children and mentally and physically disabled individuals is often caused due to infection by the dwarf tapeworm as these are passed on through the stool of infected individuals.

Humans can either ingest the eggs that grow into larvae inside the body or consume larvae that invariably grow into adults tapeworms. While adult tapeworms lodge themselves in the intestine and show mild symptoms, the larvae that hatch from the eggs are small enough to travel through bloodstream and reach other tissues. These larvae form cysts in other tissues that may then cause serious complications.

Some of the common symptoms of larval infection are:

  • Fever
  • Cystic masses or lumps
  • Allergic reactions to the larvae
  • Coughing
  • Jaundice
  • Blindness
  • Neurological symptoms if the brain is affected

Adult Tapeworm Symptoms

  • Nausea
  • Weakness
  • Diarrhea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Abdominal pain
  • Weight loss
