Ectopic enterobius vermicularis in mesenteric lymph node in a child presenting with intestinal obstruction.
Rawal Med J Jan ;37(1):54-5.
Enterobius vermicularis (pin worm) is rarely found outside the gastro-intestinal tract. We describe a case of extra-intestinal pinworm in a child who presented with intestinal obstruction and Meckel′s diverticulum was diagnosed. Resection and anastomosis was performed. Histopathological examination of one of mesenteric lymph nodes revealed ectopic Entrobius vermicularis worm surrounded by graulomatous reaction. It is likely that the pinworms obtained access via the lymphatic pathway. (Rawal Med J 2012;37:54-55).
