Man Gets 5-Foot Long Tapeworm From Eating Sushi Everyday
Jan 20, 2018, 03:41
According to the man's doctor, the self-proclaimed sushi lover pulled a massive tapeworm from his own body before arriving for treatment.
After treating the man with deworming medication used in humans and dogs, Bahn measured the tapeworm and found that it was 5 feet, 6 inches - the same height as Bahn himself, SFGate reported.
A Fresno man with an obsessive appetite for raw salmon sushi provided Dr. Kenny Banh, an emergency physician at Community Regional Medical Center, with a great story to share with producers of "This Won't Hurt A Bit", a fast-paced podcast for the curious health consumer.
Banh said a young fellow strolled into the clinic whining of bleeding the runs and approaching to be tried for worms.
He denied it but added that he had just been eating raw salmon on nearly every day. Banh recounted what the man told him on the podcast "This Won't Hurt A Bit" earlier this month. When he learned it was just a tapeworm, he was relieved and was provided necessary medication to help him.
But when the patient began pulling out what looked like intestine, it started to move.
When doctors didn't believe his claim he proceeded to pull part of the worm out and wrap it around a piece of toilet paper. "He then picks the thing up, 'looks at it, and what does it do?"
The patient is now wondering if he has been eating salmon from somewhere that it hasn't been properly treated.
"When you're eating uncooked fish - or other raw foods, like unpasteurized milk - there is some inherent risk", said Adalja. Sitting on the toilet he noticed something odd, and thought he could see his "guts coming out".
Proving that he wasn't lying, the patient handed him a toilet paper roll. He reckons it was 5-and-a-half feet long.
And researchers say that this means salmon caught anywhere along the Pacific coast of the United States may have tapeworm. But when fish isn't frozen for long enough, or if it doesn't reach low enough temperatures, some parasites can survive and find their way into people's bodies, Banh explained. It's a type of worm that can grow up to 30 feet long, the CDC says.
In February 2017, the CDC announced that they'd found a species called Diphyllobothrium nihonkaiense -the Japanese broad tapeworm- inside samples of wild pink salmon from Alaska.
