Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Thai man horrified after pulling a giant, moving tapeworm out of his backside

A Thai man was horrified after pulling a giant 10 metre long (32ft) tapeworm from his backside while using the toilet.

Kritsada Ratprachoom, 44, from Udon Thani in north eastern Thailand, was stunned when he felt something "sticking out of his bottom" and wriggling when he was using the bathroom.

At first the freelance photographer thought it was a piece of string leftover from the surgery he had had to have his appendix removed a week earlier.

However, he soon realised it was more than he'd bargained for - and the sticky and stretchy object was in fact a live tapeworm.

He said: "I had just finished dropping my off at school and ran some errands when I had to go for a number two.

"Afterwards, I felt like I wasn't finished defecating, like something was left. So I got up to see what it was.

"Turns out there was something sticking out of my bottom."

Kritsada began pulling on the worm and said he felt like it could have been stretched for up to 32ft.

After pulling it out of his behind, the baffled man put the worm down on the toilet cistern and it began slithering around.

Perplexed with what to do, Kritsada proceeded to flush the worm down the toilet.

He is clueless as to how the worm could have got inside of him in the first place.

Tapeworms are flat, ribbon-like worms that can live in your gut if you swallow their eggs or small, newly hatched worms.

Tapeworm infections are rare in the UK, but are fairly common in other parts of the world.

Many don't cause obvious symptoms and can be easily treated.

But very occasionally, the worms can spread to other parts of the body and cause serious problems.

Tapeworms can grow up to 55ft long and can survive in the intestine as long as 25 years.

That Thai dude should seriously consider eating 1000mg bendazole for a week.

My father in law had a parasite from eating undercooked pork, it ends up eating tunnels in your brain and the medicine that kills it leaves you with little pieces of calcium from when the worm dies. It just makes sense to once every six months to take a dose of albendazole just as a precautionary method. Street food and vegetables not properly washed are the main contributors to the problem. I can t understand "educated" locals that don t clean the pipes out on a regular basis. the Taenia Solium ( pork tapeworm) first enters your gut and takes quite a while to get up to the brain. Here is a magnified picture of the little [email protected], spend the five bucks every six months and don t give it a chance to chew away your sparkling personality and lifetime of memories.

I didn't think that albendazole killed tape worms . Is Niclosamide not the drug of choice here.

Albendazole, also known as albendazolum, is a medication used for the treatment of a variety of parasitic worm infestations. It is useful for giardiasis, trichuriasis, filariasis, neurocysticercosis, hydatid disease, pinworm disease, and ascariasis, among others. It is taken by mouth. Wikipedia

I will do a little research, thanks. I would love to see a real doctor here, not just one that dispenses Amoxicillin for everything from appendicitis to an earache.

Taenia saginata and Taenia solium pass their life cycles in two hosts. Humans are the only definitive hosts for Taenia saginata and Taenia solium. Eggs or gravid proglottids are passed with faeces, the eggs can survive for days to months in the environment. Cattle (T. saginata) and pigs (T. solium) become infected by ingesting vegetation contaminated with eggs or gravid proglottids.

In the animal's intestine, they hatch, invade the intestinal wall, and migrate to the muscles, where they develop into cysticerci. A cysticercus can survive for several years in the animal. Humans become infected by ingesting raw or undercooked infected meat. In the human intestine, the cysticercus develops over 2 months into an adult tapeworm,

which can survive for years. The adult tapeworms attach to the small intestine by their scolex and reside in the small intestine.

Length of the adult worms is usually 5 metres or less for T. saginata (however it may reach up to 25 metres) and 2 to 7 metres for T. solium.

The adults produce proglottids which mature, become gravid, detach from the tapeworm, and migrate to the anus or are passed in the stool (approximately 6 per day). T. saginata adults usually have 1,000 to 2,000 proglottids, while T. solium adults have an average of 1,000 proglottids. The eggs contained in the gravid proglottids are released after the proglottids are passed with the faeces. T. saginata may produce up to 100,000 and T. solium may produce 50,000 eggs per proglottid respectively.The adult stages of T.saginata and T.solium may persist for several years in infected humans. Mixed infections of both the parasites can occur. Although the lifespan of T. solium is not known it is suspected to be some years.

in 93 I was on Koh Pang Yang with my misses, young English kid in hut next to us was in a rely bad way so misses took him to the local quack, after describing his symptoms the quack asked him to bend over, stuck his finger up his arse and said you have a big worm, wrote him a note to take to the shop down the road, deal was he had to eat 2 table spoons of the hottest curry powder without water for 2 minuits, this would burn the head of the worm and kill it and you would shit it out, well he did in our toilet, it was like an Alien remake and filled up a glass jar, packed it away to take home to show the boys.
