Whipworm infestation

A worldwide problem, but mainly affecting the tropics, whipworm is marked by small, cylindrical whiplike worms which are 2.5-5cm long and reside in the large intestine.  Light infestation produces no symptoms, though if the infestation is heavy it can cause abdominal pain, diarrhoea and sometimes anaemia.  It is recognised through the identification of eggs in the faeces.  It is treated with anthelmintic drugs, and if the infestation is heavy it may require more than one course of treatment.
