Case of the Week 322

The following case was donated by Dr. Tess Karre.  This was an incidental finding in sections of duodenum that had been removed during a gastric restrictive procedure from a 50 year old morbidly obese patient.  There was no travel history outside of the United States.


Identification?

Adult male Enterobius vermicularis specimen cut in cross-section perhaps?

The two lateral spikes suggest that these are cross sections of an E. vermicularis.

Agree with Enterobius due to lateral alae, unusual site to find it though.
