The patient is 66 years with 35 years being a diabetic patient and been suffering with vascular dementia for more than 2 years. He has an ulcer patch in his stomach and now a big and a small white worm came out of his mouth. I wonder if it is Guinea worm disease.

The guinea worm migrated in body cavities after 4 years of infestation. I didn"t yet find a drug to kill adult worms. I have already 14 years from infestation.
