Case of the Week 414

This week's case was generously donated by Dr. Kara Levinson and Dr. Peter Gilligan. The specimen is a peri-anal collection from a young girl using a Swube device. The objects shown measure approximately 60 microns in greatest dimension. Identification?

This is hard to believe, but I still remember as a young child, submitting to the scotch tape method at the Mayo Clinic. Why I remember it, I don't know…it certainly was not remembered as traumatic.

Very characteristic of a case of E. Vermiculate infection. The nocturnal pruritus must have caused some discomfort.

Eggs from Enterobius vermicularis. This can be also diagnosed by Graham technique, because the female lay her eggs perianal usually by night.
