So, ascarids — roundworms who can reach enough big sizes. The female can grow to 20-40 cm, and the male of an ascarid reaches 15-25 cm. Worms can live in a human body about a year.

Pinworms — the small roundworms (females reach 12 mm, males — 4 mm) provoking developing of an itch in an anus. Soliter is the flat worm reaching sometimes up to 2 m in length.

Today there are data of World Health Organization that parasitic diseases affected about 90% of people in the world. At the same time the level of their life has no the defining value. The ascaridosis is recognized as the most eurysynusic helminthosis.

Reasons of emergence of worms

Worms at children and adults parasitize most often in a small bowel. In days they allocate about two hundred thousand eggs which get to environment with excrements. If eggs of worms appear in the warm soil, then conditions for their maturing are created almost ideal. Approximately in a month from eggs there are larvae of worms then getting to a human body with dirty vegetables, fruit or because of dirty hands. Flies also transfer on pads of egg of worms that promotes their penetration into a human body.

After hit of larvae of worms in intestines they begin to move ahead on circulatory system, at the same time damaging walls of veins and a mucous membrane. Further worms disperse on an organism, in a liver, the right auricle, the lower vena cava. But also it is not a limit. Sometimes worms by hit through a pulmonary artery and capillaries appear even in alveoluses.

Because of cough of a larva quickly move to bronchial tubes. At the same time with saliva they get into a gastrointestinal tract.

Often treatment of worms demands acceptance of more radical measures. So, the immediate surgery is required in case of a blockage of a gleam of a small bowel by a ball of ascarids and emergence of impassability. An operative measure is made at a long spasm of a small bowel owing to presence of a dead ascarid, the acute appendicitis caused by a blockage worms of a worm-shaped shoot, blockage worms of bilious ways, perforations of a wall of intestines worms there.

For treatment of worms use also oxygen which is entered to the patient through a gastric tube.
