Abstract:

Ascaris lumbricoides is one of the most common helminth infecting humans. It can affect all age groups but is more prevalent in pre-school children belonging to low socio economic status. Left untreated, it can cause significant and serious complications which include small intestinal obstruction, volvulus and intussusception which require urgent surgical interventions. Ascaris lumbricoides infection should be kept as one of the differential diagnosis of acute abdomen especially in Indian children to avoid serious complications.


Keywords: Ascarislumbricoides, Acute abdomen, Intestinal obstruction.
