Caption: Parasitic roundworm (Ascaris lumbricoides) in a gloved hand. A. lumbricoides is a parasite of the human intestine. Female roundworms can lay up to 200,000 eggs per day, which are excreted in the faeces and ingested by a new host through contaminated water or food. Infection causes abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhoea and peritonitis.
