 Nematodes Review Notes
Enterobius vermicularis is the most common nematode infection in the United States.  It is equally common in developed and developing countries.  It is more frequent in children.
Enterobius vermicularis does not migrate through the tissues, and it does not cause eosinophilia.
Infection with Enterobius vermicularis is frequently asymptomatic.  The most typical symptom is perianal itching, which can lead to excoriations and bacterial superinfection.  Since the egg only takes 4-6 hours to become infectious, the itching can lead to reinfection.  Very occasionally, ectopic disease is seen because of local migration (i.e., appendicitis or salpingitis).
