It’s Not a Tumor – Doctors Find Worm In Woman’s Brain Instead

Doctors in Arizona thought a Phoenix-area woman had a possible brain tumor, but it turned out there was something else penetrating her brain – a worm.

Rosemary Alvarez started experiencing numbness in her arm and blurred vision. She went to the emergency room twice and had a cat scan, but everything came up clear, MyFOXPhoenix. com reported

It wasn’t until doctors took a closer look at an MRI that they discovered something very disturbing.

“Once we saw the MRI we realized this is something not good,” neurosurgeon, Dr. Peter Nakaji told the news station. “It’s something down in her brain stem which is as deep in the brain as you can be.”

Alvarez was wheeled into surgery where Nakaji and his colleagues were expecting to remove a tumor, but they uncovered a worm instead.

On a video of the surgery, Nakaji can be heard chuckling after he made the discovery.

“I’m sure this is a very strange response for the people in the operating room,” he told MyFOXPhoenix. com. “But because I was so pleased to know that it wasn’t going to be something terrible.”

Doctors removed the worm and don’t believe Alvarez will have any lingering health problems. No one knows exactly where she picked up the worm –- doctors said worms can come from eating undercooked pork or spread by people who don’t wash their hands after using the bathroom, according to the report.

“It only takes one person who is spreading it constantly to get a lot of people exposed and some of those people are going to go on to develop this problem,” Nakaji said.

Alvarez, who is now healthy and has resumed normal activities such a playing ball with family in her backyard, said she hopes people learn this lesson from her story.

“Wash your hands, wash your hands,” she added.

Arizona – Seekor cacing membuat tim dokter AS terkaget-kaget. Hewan itu ditemukan di dalam otak seorang wanita!

Kejadian mengejutkan ini terjadi di Arizona, AS seperti diberitakan MyFOXPhoenix. com,

Temuan tak biasa itu ditemukan saat para dokter sedang mengoperasi Rosemary Alvarez. Wanita itu diduga memiliki tumor di dalam otaknya. Dia mengalami mati rasa pada lengannya dan penglihatan buram.

Sebelumnya, wanita itu telah dua kali masuk kamar operasi dan menjalani CT scan. Namun dokter belum mengetahui penyakitnya. Tapi ketika dokter mengamati dengan seksama hasil MRI, terlihat sesuatu yang sangat mengganggu.

“Begitu kami melihat MRI, kami sadar ini sesuatu yang tidak baik,” kata ahli bedah syaraf Dr Peter Nakaji. Para dokter mengira sesuatu di dalam otak Rosemary tersebut adalah tumor.

Wanita itu pun dioperasi untuk menjalani pengangkatan tumor. Namun betapa kagetnya Nakaji ketika mengoperasi Rosemary. Nakaji bahkan tertawa tertahan di meja operasi.

“Saya yakin ini respons yang sangat aneh bagi orang-orang di ruang operasi,” kata Nakaji mengenai dirinya yang menahan tawa. “Tapi karena saya sangat senang mengetahui kalau itu bukan sesuatu yang mengerikan,” imbuhnya.

Para dokter pun mengangkat cacing tersebut. Mereka yakin pasien tak akan lagi mengalami gangguan kesehatan.

Tak ada yang tahu bagaimana cacing itu bisa masuk ke otak Rosemary. Namun para dokter mengatakan, cacing bisa masuk dari daging yang kurang matang atau karena tidak mencuci tangan setelah menggunakan toilet.

Rosemary yang kini sehat dan telah kembali beraktivitas seperti semula, memetik pelajaran dari kejadian itu. “Cuci tangan Anda, cuci tangan Anda,” ujarnya mengingatkan
