Tapeworms Infecting Woman's Brain For Months Shocked Doctors



Tapeworms are gross and uncomfortable. They usually grows inside your stomach, waiting to devour each meal you consumes. 

However, one rare case of a Texan woman made medical experts in awe when she complained that she's suffering from severe headaches for many months, only to find out that her brains was already infected by tapeworms. 

Yadira Rostro first started to notice bad headaches nine months ago and finally sought medical help after they continued to get worse.

They immediately operated her to remove the parasites and took out a total of 8 tapeworm eggs from her brain.

Neurosurgeon Richard Meyrat believed that the 31-year-old picked up the tapeworms on a trip to Mexico two years ago, which are common in food contaminated with fecal matter.

These parasites usually leave their eggs in the digestive tracts of their hosts and are excreted in feces in a few days. 

But somehow the worm sacs made their way through her bloodstream into in her brain, and feed on her blood supply.

With Yadira's permission, Methodist Dallas Medical Center shared video of doctors extracting the larvae earlier this month.

Neurosurgeon Richard Meyrat explained.

"They looked a little bit like eggs, and they have a clear sac," he said. "And inside it, a small tapeworm."

Yadira is expected to make a full recovery however, she doesn't want to view the footage from her surgery which is very understandable.
