Abstract

We describe an unusual presentation of Enterobius vermicularis infestation. Computed tomography showed wall thickening in the distal ileum and cecum, with fat stranding, ascites and mesenteric adenopathy. Fluoroscopic examination confirmed distal ileal transverse fold thickening. Isolation of Enterobius vermicularis in stool and biopsy confirmed the diagnosis. Enterobius should be included among the causes of eosinophilic ileocolitis.
