Enterobiasis

 

This is a parasitic infestation caused by the pinworm called Enterobius vermicularis. It is about 1 cm long and lives in the intestine where the gravid female migrates to the perinanal skin The gravid female then releases up to 10,000 immature eggs which mature in hours and are then transmitted through feco-oral means. It is easily transmitted this way and therefore affects family members or institutional individuals.
