Abstract:

Ascariasis is the intestinal parasitic infection caused by Ascaris lumbricoides (roundworm). Its highest prevalence is observed in the tropical and subtropical areas. In contrast to silent forms of this illness or chronic symptomatology, massive infestation in children can lead to serious complications like intestinal obstruction requiring urgent surgical attention. We report a seven year old female child with severe sequelae of intestinal obstruction.
