Crawling worm lives inside human body

“Another strange medical incident was registered in the territory of the Ulyanovsk region. This illness is rare and there is not much research there. In the beginning there is a knob on the body of a human being. The knob starts moving under the skin afterwards. The parasite Dirofilaria repens, ‘a terrible crawling thread,’ can live in the human body for months moving under the skin. Pravda.ru informed earlier about a woman from Ulyanovsk who had a strange swelling on her forehead. There was a thread-thick worm found inside, seven centimeters long. The worm was living in the body of the woman for almost a year.”
