Man reports having a severe headache Visited the hospital, but the physician discovered something even more serious

Surgeons were left shocked when they discovered a disturbing sight in a man’s forehead after he complained of severe headaches. Disturbing images reveal a 15cm-long worm that had burrowed under the patient’s skin around his temples. The incident took place at a hospital in Novorossiysk, Russia, where doctors removed the parasite from the man’s forehead after he developed a painful lump above his left eye. Initially suspecting an infection from a mosquito bite, medical experts were taken aback by what they found.

Using surgical tools, the doctors made an incision into the lump and successfully extracted a thin, white roundworm. These worms are parasitic creatures that can survive in the bodies of humans and other animals, often causing symptoms such as diarrhea and fever. In a strange twist, the staff at City Hospital No.1 decided to put the worm on display following its removal.

According to a statement released by the facility, the young man was admitted to the City Hospital of Novorossiysk with complaints of painful swelling in the brow area. A doctor from the maxillofacial department suspected a purulent-inflammatory process in the patient. Consequently, the patient was hospitalized in the maxillofacial surgery department, where a surgical procedure was performed to open the abscess. During this procedure, the doctors made the shocking discovery of a thin, white worm measuring approximately 15 cm long.

The hospital explained that the worm had settled in the tissue beneath the man’s skin near his brow. However, identifying these parasites can be challenging since they may not have been in the body long enough for more specific symptoms to manifest. Without thorough testing, the worms can often be mistaken for skin infections. The hospital staff emphasized that ultrasound examinations provide the most informative information in such cases.

The discovery of the worm in the man’s forehead highlights the need for accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment to prevent further complications. While this case may be rare, it underscores the significance of medical professionals remaining vigilant and conducting thorough examinations to ensure the well-being of their patients.
