Caption: Intestinal parasites. Artwork showing the human intestines (pink) surrounded by various parasitic worms which can live in them. In the lower segment are pinworms (or threadworms, Enterobius vermicul- aris), which are very common in children, affecting up to one fifth of them. In the upper left segment are a whipworm (lower left), a hookworm (Necator americanus, above whipworm) and a tapeworm. In the upper right segment are Ascaris worms, another threadworm, and the head of another tapeworm. These worms live off the blood of the host, which they take from the intestinal wall. They can all be killed with anthelmintic drugs.
