This is the stool sample received from 8 months female. Stool gross appearance is yellowish in color with black thread like worms?? They are not motile. Plz give your opinion



I agree. Get a stool examination done before labelling it as worm. At least one of them should be motile.

Trichuris trichiura (whipworm), although Stool microscopy will be better to differentiate it from pinworm. Treatment with Albendazol 400mg OD for three days will suffice for either.

albendazole can't be given in 8month old
