Pinworm in the Sigmoid Colon
The endoscopic images in this site are mostly quite compressed in order to make the transmissions times as short as possible. Sometimes it is however nice to have high resolution images, for example for publications, text books or lectures. In these new high resolution files some larger images are displayed.

Enterobius vermicularis, pinworm, is an intestinal roundworm endemic in both temperate and tropical regions and common especially in schoolage children. It is especially common in group living conditions. The pinworm can be found in the caecum and colon. Anal pruritus is the most common symtom, but the infection can be associated with abdominal pain. The adult female pinworm is about 10 millimeters long, the male pinworm is much smaller. The female worm lays eggs in the perianal region, and the worm is transmitted from person to person via the infected persons hands, or by bedclothes. Enterobius vermicularis can be treated with several antihelminthic drugs, e.g. pyrantel pamoate, pyrvinium pamoate or mebendazole.
