Abstract

We describe a case of human infection with acquired in southeast Georgia. The patient presented with intermittent yet persistent nausea and vomiting for months. This case describes the need for extraction of worms on two occasions each followed by courses of albendazole treatment. infections with high worm burden may relapse after extraction of the worm and a 3‐day short course of albendazole therapy. Longer courses of albendazole may be indicated in selected circumstances.
