Diseases » Enterobiasis

Enterobiasis is generally a benign intestinal disease with mild or nonspecific symptoms. If severe, it may cause anal itching at night with disturbed sleep. Its distribution is worldwide. Infection is usually familiar. Crowding is an important factor. The life cycle of the causative microorganism requires 3 to 6 weeks. The worm burden ordinarily builds up from successive reinfection and may not be recognized for months.
