Ascaris lumbricoides in the paranasal sinuses of a Jamaican adult



Ascaris lumbricoides in the paranasal sinuses of a Jamaican adult



Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 91(1): 37



The presence of 6 mature Ascaris lumbricoides in a sagittal section of the head and neck of a Jamaican adult (3 in the maxillary sinus and 3 in the sphenoidal sinus) is reported. Two of the worms in the maxillary sinus were male, and all 3 in the sphenoidal sinus were female. The worms measured 7-11 cm in length and eggs of A. lumbricoides were observed in close relation to the epithelium of the maxillary sinus wall. In the case described, the ostia of the sinuses were between 3 and 4 mm in width, and therefore large enough for the passage of the worms as adults. A figure showing a sagittal section of the human head and the presence of adult A. lumbricoides in the nasal sinuses is included.
