Figure 1: (a) Intra-operative exicisional biopsy picture during extirpation of worm. (b) Tissue with tracts, (c) the worm (d) photomicrograph of tissue biopsy. Note the multiple pseudocystic cavities formed by connective tissue. Also note the compressed adipocytes, localized mixed inflammatory cell infiltrate and degenerating connective tissue elements (H and E, ×4) (e) photomicrograph of the worm. Note the thick, multi-layered, striated cuticle, a central intestinal tube and extremely well-developed somatic musculature limiting the pseudocoele cavity (H and E, ×40)
