Enterobius vermicularis (pin worm) is a common intestinal parasite infection which usually affects children and rarely causes significant illness. However, of the few reports of extra-intestinal E. vermicularis infection reported in the literature, patients can have significant morbidity and mortality, thus stressing the need for appropriate management of pin worm infection. We report a case of massive E. vermicularis infection in a 20-year-old male which was inadvertently discovered during an emergency abdominal surgery. The case emphasizes the need to perform routine ova-parasite screening at periodic intervals to detect intestinal parasitic infections, to promote adequate practices to improve sanitation facilities and to direct appropriate therapeutic measures to eliminate the worm burden in case of infections.
