Man's Chronic Headaches For Four Years Were Caused By A Tapeworm Living In His Brain!

Cue the squirms!

A 50-year-old man has been suffering from headaches for the last four years, and doctors didn't know why, until now.

Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute scientists finally figured out that it was because a four-inch-long tapeworm was wiggling around inside his brain!

In addition to headaches, the man had memory flashbacks, complex seizures, and pain on his right side.

When the headaches started in 2008, doctors did an MRI, and over the years, they realized the brain lesions they saw moved two inches, which is when the biopsy told them what was really happening.

A parasite was living in his head!!!

Reportedly, these tapeworms are transferred to humans through eating infected meat, or by frog-meat poultices used on wounds, which is traditional in some parts of China. In this case, the British man was of Chinese descent, and traveled back to the country.

In Europe, only seven cases of being infected with this particular tapeworm have been reported, but there are over 1,000 in China!

Luckily, the man has recovered, but still suffers from an infection due to the worm.

The good news is that as a result of this study, scientists are working on a drug to help people like this man.

So crazy!
