Man got huge tapeworm from eating sushi

A California man who had eaten sushi went to the hospital after discovering a tapeworm that was ‘wiggling out’ as he sat on the toilet during a trip to the bathroom

A patient at Fresno's Community Regional Medical Center recently came to Dr. Kenny Banh, an emergency medicine doctor, complaining of bloody diarrhea and asking to be treated for tapeworms, Banh recalled on the latest episode of the podcast.

A California man is likely adjusting his consistent sushi propensity in the wake of finding a tapeworm that may have entered his body through the crude salmon he adores to such an extent.

Bahn said doctors asked him if he had been out of the country.

The man admitted eating salmon sashimi every day.

According to the doctor-run podcast, This Won't Hurt A Bit, a no-nonsense Fresno man removed a tapeworm from his own rectum and later presented it to the bemused staff of a local Hospital.

As the man began pulling on the worm, and it continued sliding out inch by inch, the creature began moving - and rather than faint, he felt relieved.

Banh, who often makes guest appearances on educational podcasts like "This Won't Hurt A Bit", said he couldn't tell if the worm was a week old or six months old because worms can grow at different rates.

According to Live Strong, a huge tapeworm infestation could lead to a block in the intestines, bile duct, appendix or pancreatic duct. The sushi eater, who was glad that it was a tapeworm that was coming out of himself instead of his intestines, said that he will no longer eat his favorite sashimi after the disgusting incident.

Fears over the Japanese salmon tapeworm, or Diphyllobothrium nihonkaiense, came to light in January 2017 when a team of researchers reported its discovery in a wild salmon in Alaska. According to Dr. Bahn, the man eats it nearly every day.

Scientists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have found tapeworms in some Pacific salmon.

The only way to kill the parasite is to either deep freeze the fish or cook it properly.

It previously only infected fish found in Asian waters. A single dose of de-worming medication - the exact same pill given to dogs - is all it takes to kill all the worms.

Banh said a young fellow strolled into the clinic whining of bleeding the runs and approaching to be tried for worms.

He was also suspicious of the man's pledge never to eat raw fish again. He hadn't been exposed to parasitic infection by travel, or by drinking contaminated liquids, or by eating raw meat, he was sure - which really only left one possibility: sushi.
