Abstract

Detection of Trichuris trichiura during colonoscopic examination is an unusual finding, at least in developed countries. We report a case of a coincidental endoscopic diagnosis of whipworm infestation performed in a patient referred to our open-access endoscopy even before a faecal examination for ova and/or parasites had been performed. Review of literature on colonoscopic diagnosis of T. trichuria is provided.
