A Thai man made a sickening discovery as he used the toilet this week — a 32-foot-long tapeworm “sticking out of his bottom,” according to a new report.
Kritsada Ratprachoom, 44, of Udon Thani in northeastern Thailand, felt something slimy in his behind after he finished doing his business on Monday, The Mirror reported.
He saw the long tapeworm slithering on the toilet bowl.
Ratprachoom snapped a few photos — even picking up the stomach-churning ribbon-like worm and holding it in his hand — before flushing it down.
He said he’s not sure how the worm got inside him in the first place.
Tapeworm infections — which are usually easily treated — can occur when someone ingests food or water contaminated with the parasite’s eggs or larvae.
Adult tapeworms can measure more than 80 feet long and can survive as long as 30 years in a host, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Some of the parasites attach themselves to the intestinal walls, causing irritation or mild inflammation, while others — like in Ratprachoom’s case — slither out in bowel movements.
