Sushi warning as patient found with live worms writhing in gut
[link to www.telegraph.co.uk]


The growing popularity of sushi could fuel a rise in deadly parasitic worm infections, doctors have warned.

Raw fish can carry tiny worms which bury into the guts of humans if eaten, a condition known as anisakiasis, which can cause severe stomach pain, vomiting and fever.

However in severe cases it can cause an anaphylactic reaction, the parasites can trigger an erratic heartbeat and respiratory failure, which can lead to death.

Until recently cases in Western countries were rare because most dietary fish is cooked, which kills the worms. But the rise of sushi has led to cases in hospitals across Europe.

In the latest incident a 32 year old Portuguese man was left in agony for a week after eating raw slices of fish from a Japanese restaurant.

When doctors put an endoscope, a long tube with a camera, down his throat they found a mass of writhing white larvae burrowing into his gut lining.
