Caption: Guinea worm life cycle. Diagram showing the life cycle of the parasitic nematode (roundworm) Dracunculus medinensis, the cause of Guinea worm disease. Humans become infected by drinking water contaminated with infected copepods. Approximately one year after infection the adult worm emerges through a painful blister on the skin. After a global campaign to eradicate Guinea worm it is now only endemic to four African countries, down from 20 Asian and African countries in 1986.
