Infections caused by pinworms usually called Oxiuriasis or Enterobiasis. This disease is a parasitic infection that primarily affects children, which Pinworms (Oxyuris vermicularis) grow and multiply in the intestine. Pinworms disease (Oxyuris vermicularis) are usually plagued by poor diet is not good.
Pinworms (Oxyuris vermicularis) females measuring 8-13 mm x 0.44 mm with a long tail and pointy while the male pinworms measuring 2-5 mm with a circular tail. These worms usually live in the intestine and is most often found at the base of the lower bowel (rectum). Pinworms transmission (Oxyuris vermicularis) directly through the mouth, either with food or intermediaries entered inadvertently by people who scratch an itchy anus hole.
Itching from pinworm infection not only be felt in the rectal area. In women, these worms can also invade the area around the genitals including vagina and fallopian tubes that interfere with the reproductive system.
Common symptoms are usually infected by pinworms in the rectum itch, patient body weight decreased, sometimes also with diarrhea.
Developmental and stages of Oxiuriasis or Enterobiasis.Worm eggs are moved from the area around the anus the patient to the intermediary (clothing, etc.) worm eggs can also be inhaled from the air and then swallowed. After swallowing worm eggs and larvae hatch in the small intestine and grow into adult worms in the large intestine (the maturation process takes 2-6 weeks). Adult female worms move to the area around the anus (usually at night) to lay her eggs in the skin folds of the anus of the patient. Eggs stored in a sticky material. Eggs can survive outside the human body for 3 weeks at normal room temperature. But the eggs can hatch more quickly, and the young worms can get back into the rectum and lower colon.
This worm's life cycle ranging from 2 weeks to 2 months. Adult worms from the small intestine, large intestine go to, then to the anus because the worm eggs hatch only when there is oxygen, so it was named Oxyuris. On the night of pinworms in the colon of patients, usually down to the anus to lay eggs. Female worm containing 11000-15000 eggs. The eggs are rarely released in intestines, so rarely found in the feces. Eggs become mature in about 6 hours after being expelled, the body temperature. The eggs are resistant to disinfectants and cold air. In moist eggs can live up to 13 days.
Symptoms of Oxiuriasis or EnterobiasisEntrobiasis relatively harmless, rarely cause significant lesions. Prominent clinical symptoms caused by irritation around the anus, perineum and vagina by the female worms migrate stricken anus and vagina, causing local pruritus. This situation often occurs at night time until the patient becomes weak and disturbed sleep. Sometimes the young adult worms can move into the proximal small intestine to the stomach, esophagus and nose, causing disruption in the area. Some of the symptoms due to worm infections Enterobiasis vermicularis presented by several investigators, namely lack of appetite, weight loss, activity rises, enuresis, irritability, insomnia and masturbation, but sometimes difficult to prove because the relationship with pinworms.
Mild pinworm infections have no symptoms. Symptoms appear with severe infections. Common symptoms are usually infected by pinworms in the rectum itch, patient body weight decreased, sometimes also with diarrhea.
