BREAKING NEWS

Sushi lover pulls 5-foot tapeworm out of his intestine
Says Doctor

January 19, 2018



Chronicle staff

(FRESNO, CA.) -- You better be sitting down for this one. You also don't want to read this after eating a meal.

A Fresno, California man with a daily sushi habit found out by accident - a pretty gross accident when you think about it - that he had a 5.5-foot long tapeworm lodged in his intestines.

You see, he pulled that bad boy out himself, wrapped it around a cardboard toilet paper tube and carried it into Fresno's Community Regional Medical Center seeking treatment for tapeworms, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

If we're lyin' we're dyin.'

The report says Kenny Bahn was the doctor on shift when the man came in and he recounted the story in a Podcast saying the patient came in complaining of "bloody diarrhea" and wanted to be treated for tapeworms.

To prove he had tapeworms the man opened a plastic grocery bag and pulled out the tape worm-wrapped toilet paper tube.

And how did the tapeworm get out of the man's body? The doctor says the patient told him he was using the restroom when he noticed what looked like a piece of intestine hanging out of his body.

So the patient said he, "Grabs it, and he pulls on it, and it keeps coming out...and it starts moving."

That's when the patent realized he had a tapeworm problem that needed treatment.

Turns out you can get tapeworms in a number of different ways but this patient hadn't traveled out of the country or otherwise was doing anything out of the ordinary but did say he loved to eat raw salmon sushi and he ate it daily.

It also turns out the CDC posted a warning last February which said the rise in popularity of raw fish consumption had likely spurred "a recent increase of tapeworm infections."

Details on this story (if you can stomach any more details) can be found here .
