Trichuriasis whipworm

This common tropical parasite is sometimes seen in northern Australia. When the eggs are ingested with food, the larvae hatch in the small intestine and develop into adult worms, 3 to 5 cm long, which attach by means of their whiplike end to the mucosa of the large intestine. The majority of infected persons are asymptomatic but in heavy infection, abdominal cramps, diarrhoea, distension, nausea and vomiting and even rectal prolapse may develop.
