The causes, symptoms and treatment of enterobiosis

ЭнтеробиозHelminthic invasion characterized by
parasitism in the intestines of human roundworms Enterobius
vermicularis (остриц), называют enterobiasis. Running forms
This disease can cause intestinal dysbiosis,
digestive disorders, gastritis, gastroduodenitis, enteritis,
appendicitis, proctitis and other pathologies. That is why the disease
requires timely and comprehensive treatment under supervision

Characteristics of the pathogen

Pinworms are small nematodes with a milky white spindle.
body (rounded in diameter and decreasing in diameter to the ends
torso). For members of the genus Enterobius vermicularis
sexual dimorphism is characteristic. So, in adult females, the length of the body
varies from 5 to 12 mm, and in males it does not exceed 4

Pointed lateral carinae, running along the body of the helminth,
form head vesicles in its front part. Digestive
pinworm tract is represented by a mouth with three lips, esophagus
cylindrical shape, bulb, intestine and anus.
The female reproductive system includes the ovaries, uterus and vagina. AT нижней
part of the vagina is sphincter, preventing the selection
eggs in an oxygen-free environment. AT свою очередь, репродуктивная система
the male consists of a testicle and an elongated spicule.

Паразиты острицыОстрицы паразитируют в тонком и толстом
. ATозбудители enterobiosisа фиксируются на стенках этих
organs using a special apparatus formed by vesicles and
esophageal bulbus. They feed the worms with the contents of the intestines.
The number of individuals parasitizing in the body of one person,
can vary from 2−3 tens to several thousand.

Pinworms mate in the ileal cavity. After coitus
males die, and in the uterus of females from 5 to 17 thousand
elongated eggs covered with a smooth colorless shell.
Fertilized parasites lose their ability to hold onto
mucous epithelium and under the influence of peristalsis are moved to
the rectum.

After 2-3 days, female pinworms overcome the resistance of the anal
sphincter and crawl out of the patient’s anus. Once on Wednesday,
rich in oxygen, they lay eggs in the skin folds
perianal zone. After completion of the process of reproduction helminths
perish. The total life expectancy of pinworms in humans
не превышает 30 суток.

Eggs laid by females become invasive after 4−6
hours after laying. They get under nails when combing
itchy places, get on personal belongings, lingerie of the patient. Persons not
hygiene-conscious people put them in their mouths, promoting
autoinvasions. AT кишечнике заражённого человека из яиц остриц выходят
after puberty the larvae acquire the ability to
reproductions. Thus, cyclic autoinvasion contributes
развитию хронического enterobiosis.

Pathogenesis of the disease

Pathogenic effects on the human body have as
pinworm larvae as well as adults. Getting into the digestive
tract, immature helminths begin to produce
hyaluronidase, proteases and other compounds that activate the system
complement, accelerating the synthesis of prostaglandins and provoking
development of inflammatory processes.

Заболевания желудочно-кишечного трактаConstant irritation

  • impaired motor and secretory functions of the digestive
  • development of gastroduodenitis, enteritis, gastritis and other
    inflammatory diseases of the digestive tract;
  • the appearance of limited areas of necrosis and infiltration,
    point hemorrhages, erosions and granulomas on the intestinal walls.

Prolonged parasitization of pinworms in the intestine can
cause dysbacteriosis. Кроме этого, enterobiosis
is one of the factors contributing to the development of infectious
заболеваний ЖКТ и аллергических reactions.

Clinical picture

Symptoms of the disease depends on many factors (the number of
pinworms parasitizing in the patient’s body, duration
pathological process, frequency of repeated invasions, individual
patient reactions to stimuli, etc.).

Однако типичными признаками enterobiosisа

  • unbearable anal itching, worse in evening and night
  • Головные болиirritation, redness, oozing dermatitis,
    eczema in the perianal area;
  • loss of appetite, weight loss;
  • transient colicy pains in the right part of the ileal zone
    or in the paraumbilical region;
  • nocturia is a pathology where night diuresis prevails over
  • somnologicheskie violations;
  • недержание мочи в ночное time;
  • bruxism (teeth grinding in a dream);
  • unstable stool (constipation, diarrhea);
  • false urge to defecate;
  • bloating;
  • growth retardation, physical and mental development in

  • increase in the number of eosinophils in the peripheral

One of the symptoms of enterobiasis in women is long
non-passing vulvovaginitis, vulvitis, cystitis and urethritis.
Infection with scratching in the perianal area can lead to
development of pyoderma, proctitis and sphincteritis.

Diagnostic measures

A preliminary diagnosis of “enterobiasis” is made on the basis of complaints
patient for abdominal pain and itching in the anus. AT
the doctor further directs the patient to undergo laboratory
research that can detect pinworm eggs left behind
females of helminths on the skin around the anus. With
examination of children most often used the method of Graham.

With проведении этой диагностической процедуры

  • Исследование анализовcuts off a piece of transparent
    plastic tape with a sticky layer (for example, an operating film
    LPO) of length from 80 to 100 mm;
  • applies it with a sticky side to the perianal folds of the skin
  • peels off the film and transfers it onto a glass slide with sticky
    layer down;
  • cuts the protruding edges of the tape;
  • peel off a part of the film from the slide and insert it under it
    2 drops of glycerin or vaseline oil (this eliminates
    optical defects);
  • examines the imprint on the tape under the microscope.

The collection of biological material for this study produces
in the morning (immediately after waking up, but before
hygiene measures). The procedure is performed three times with an interval
in 7−10 days. This approach improves accuracy.
research results up to 91−93%.

With диагностике enterobiosisа у взрослых чаще всего применяют
method of rectal perianal scraping. For taking biological
material from the folds of the skin surrounding the anus,
use a wooden spatula. Collected scraping shake off
glass slide and carefully examined under a microscope.

With необходимости, шпатель заменяют ватной турундой, пропитанной
solution of soda (1%) or glycerin (50%).

Traditional treatments

Enterobiasis is a highly contagious disease. therefore
обследование на этот гельминтоз должны проходить все люди,
in contact with the patient. ATсе инвазированные лица в одном очаге
(for example, in a family or children’s team) must undergo a course
therapy at the same time.

AT основе успешного лечения enterobiosisа лежит соблюдение
sanitary and hygienic regime.

Persons in whom pinworms were discovered

  • Мыть рукиwash hands thoroughly before eating, when returning from
    the streets or from the toilet, after contact with objects, on surfaces
    which can remain the helminth eggs (banknotes and
    coins, door handles in common areas, handrails in
    urban transport, alien children’s toys, etc.);
  • get rid of the habit of gnawing nails, put your fingers in your mouth;
  • sleep in “closed” shorts (with tight rubber bands around the waist and
  • daily change underwear;
  • thoroughly wash the perianal zone with warm water and soap each
    times after waking up and before bedtime;
  • make cleansing enemas based on soda solution (½ h.
    spoons of sodium bicarbonate to a glass of warm boiled water) with
  • take a shower twice a day;
  • change bed linen every day or iron it
    hot iron.

Compliance with the sanitary and hygienic regime allows most
patients to get rid of enterobiosis without taking anthelmintic
