California man finds 5-foot tapeworm in body, likely from sushi

Sushi lover finds 5ft tapeworm dangling from his rectum and yanks it out himself

A Fresno man and avid lover of sushi - more specifically, salmon sashimi - pulled a 5 1/2 foot-long tapeworm out his own body.

Dr. Kenny Bahn said he treated the man when he came into the ER with bloody diarrhea, and was at first skeptical that the man actually had a tapeworm. The shocked man kept pulling until it was all the way out.

"I take out a toilet paper roll, and wrapped around it of course is what looks like this giant, long tapeworm", Dr. Kenny Bahn said on the podcast.

Doctor Kenny Banh revealed the Fresno man's case on a January 8 episode of the Podcast "This Won't Hurt A Bit," a show that mixes medical topics with laughs.

The man said he ate raw salmon sushi nearly every day - which may be how he contracted the worm. "I looked down and it looked like there was a piece of intestine hanging out of me", Banh remembered him saying. "It's a worm, '" Dr. Banh said. Banh said the patient may "poop out a bunch of worms" in the future, which is what Banh said he prescribed to the man with the giant tapeworm.

Banh asked the man if he would continue to eat sushi.

After being unraveled, the tapeworm ended up being 5-and-a-half feet long.

"He asked me for worm treatment and I was like oh, not an everyday request", Dr Banh told his colleague, and the podcast's co-host, Dr Jessica Mason.

According to a 2017 warning from the CDC, Japanese broad tapeworm larvae have been found in many Pacific-caught salmon. The parasites may be found in different types of fish that haven't been flash frozen to kill the worms.

The man said he would.

Many cases of diphyllobothriasis are asymptomatic; however, because of it's large size (can grow up to 30 feet long), a patient may experience abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, vomiting, and weight loss.

Regularly, tapeworm prompts just minor side effects, however in uncommon cases the disease can transform into a genuine restorative issue, as indicated by Roman Kuchta, lead creator of the investigation and an exploration researcher at the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.

In the meantime, Banh says the man plans to lay off the sashimi.

Once the analysis is made, in any case, the cure is straightforward - a similar pill that individuals provide for tainted mutts can be given to people. The clue was the patient's love of sushi, particularly raw salmon.
