Evaluation of the living conditions of a significant subgroup of our patients confirms that intestinal parasitism is an endemic condition prevailing in nations that exhibit deep social and economic imbalance, where large sectors of the population remain deprived of the basic services of education, health, housing, and recreation. Massive infestation in children may give rise to grave complications that demand expert surgical care. Third World surgeons practicing in general hospitals that take care of patients of low economic capacity are usually familiar with the diagnosis and management of this pathology; surgeons who practice in the industrialized nations will only occasionally face such problems.

Ascaris lumbricoides is a facultative parasite that resides in the human gastrointestinal tract, and is associated with malnutrition, iron deficiency, malabsorption, intestinal obstruction, pulmonary complications, and poor weight gain. Ascaris lives between the stomach and the ileocecal valve, however unfavorable local conditions are associated with their migration to other regions of the intestinal tract where they can cause complications such as pancreatitis, cholecystitis, liver abscess, or pneumonia.
