Question: perianal eggs with itching and petichae
|spiriform - Sun May 29, 2005 3:08 am||
The thread of infections is not working, so I thought infections are common among infants and I can find someone who knows the diagnosis, here..
The case is of a 22 years old male patient. Complaining of itching and peticheal heamorrhage in the perianal area of one to two months duration. Recently, the patient has noticed the presence of minute eggs that are oval in shape, dark in color and have a spine at one of their poles (no lab diagnosis has been done - only eye examination).
Any further questions about symptoms and signs, or any advice or diagnosis, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Looks like enterobiasis to me. Have your doctor investigate that.
