Description of the disease

Helminthiasis is a disease caused by parasitic worms that live inside the human body. These worms can affect the liver, intestines, lungs, eyes, and other organs.

Symptoms of helminthiasis can vary depending on the type of parasite and its location, but they often include abdominal pain, diarrhea, increased fatigue, and weight loss.


The cause of helminthiasis is infection with parasitic worms through contaminated water or food, as well as through direct contact with an infected person or animal.


Laboratory stool tests, as well as methods of computed tomography and ultrasound, are used for the diagnosis of helminthiasis.


Treatment of helminthiasis includes taking anthelmintic drugs, as well as using symptomatic therapy to alleviate the manifestations of the disease.


Prevention of helminthiasis involves following hygiene rules, thorough heat treatment of food, and deworming of pets.


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