Pinworms in Appendix (Oxyuriasis)

slide 16 of 17

Comments:
Pinworms (Enterobius vermicularis) were an incidental finding in this middle-aged patient who underwent hysterectomy and staging procedure for adenocarcinoma of the endometrium. The lateral "spines" (actually longitudinal blade-like ridges running the length of the worm) are identifying features of the pinworm. Courtesy of: Ed Uthman, Houston, Texas.
