“Ophidascaris robertsi, a nematode found in pythons”, cites the publication Sanyayu Senanayake, a specialist in infectious diseases at the city hospital: “The Canberra patient was the first case in the world in which this parasite was found in a being human”.

The doctors said that since 2021 the woman had been complaining of abdominal pain, diarrhea, constant dry cough, fever and night sweats, and after a while forgetfulness and depression were added.

The MRI showed abnormalities that required surgery, and during the MRI, surgeons found an 8-centimeter Ophidascaris worm. According to doctors, the Ophidascaris worm infection is not transmitted from person to person and will not cause a pandemic like COVID-19.
