Pinworm. Endoscope image of a pinworm (Enterobius vermicularis, centre left) in a human colon. This intestinal parasite is a ringworm found in both temperate and tropical regions. The female pinworm lays eggs in the perianal region, and the eggs and larvae are transmitted from person to person by unwashed hands or bedclothes. This condition can be treated with antihelminthic drugs.
