According to a report, it is the longest tapeworm they found in the country for 50 years.

In late March this year, the man, 67, from Nong Khai province, said he had suffered extreme farting since the beginning of March. As his condition he worsened, he went to the local hospital where the doctor took a stool sample for testing.

A surprising result showed that it contained 28 infective larvae. Meanwhile, the doctors believed it came from infected and uncooked beef.

They later on prescribed a deworming medication to the patient. In the next day, the giant parasite oozed out of his bottom.

In a footage taken by the Parasitic Disease Research Center, two medics pour water into a huge chunk of tapeworm.

It measured over 18 meters in length, making it the longest tapeworm seen in Thailand in the last 50 years.

A spokesperson from the Center said the patient had inside a Taenia saginata bovine tapeworm that is more than 18 meters long. 

Dr Schawanya Rattanapitoon, who led the team, said: “Transmission is caused by eating raw beef. These parasites can live in humans for more than 30 years.”

Nevertheless, these parasites don’t survive this long anymore due to the already available medications.

“We have suggested that the patient’s family also have medical tests to find out whether they had parasites as they are also at risk,” Dr. Rattanapitoon said.

“We warned them not to continue consuming raw meat as that is one of the main causes of having parasites in the body.”
