A 15-year-old girl in the UK shocked doctors in the operation theatre after it was discovered that her appendix was completely riddled with worms. It was initially suspected that the girl was suffering from appendicitis as she had been displaying symptoms like nausea and pain on her right side, near to her hip.

A video of the laparoscopy surgery shows how the appendix had turned into ‘lily white’ when it is normally pink or red. Long, white worms were seen crawling inside her appendix, which were then quickly removed via a suction pipe after taking out the organ. It was later confirmed that the girl had been suffering from an intestinal infection called pinworm, which is caused by tiny parasitic worms.

 

Fortunately, the girl has made a full recovery post surgery. Surprisingly, this particular type of worm infection is a condition that is found to be prevalent in around 61 per cent of children in India.
