What is Ascariasis?

Description of the disease

Ascariasis is a parasitic disease caused by roundworms-ascaris. They inhabit the human small intestine and can cause various symptoms and complications.


  • Ascariasis of mild and moderate degree
  • Severe ascariasis


  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fever
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Cough


Infection occurs through the consumption of food or water contaminated with ascaris eggs. This most often occurs in countries with poor sanitary and hygienic conditions, but accidental infection is also possible in regions with developed infrastructure.


Stool and blood tests are used for the diagnosis of ascariasis, as well as instrumental methods such as X-ray examination.


Treatment of ascariasis is carried out using antiparasitic drugs and symptomatic therapy. In some cases, surgical intervention may be required to remove the worms.


  • Observance of hygiene rules when consuming food and water
  • Conducting deworming
  • Use of filters for water purification


For the diagnosis and treatment of ascariasis, it is necessary to consult a parasitologist or infectious disease specialist.
