Maggots in nose treatment, 145 worms from woman’s eyes and nose
According to a TOI report, doctors at Sparsh Hospital in Rajarajeshwari Nagar, Bengaluru, removed worms from the eyes and nose of a 65-year-old woman during a surgery. It was also caused by mucormycosis (black fungus) and covid-19 a year ago. Due to these insects, he had a nasal cavity in his nose, due to which doctors had to remove the dead tissue from his nose. Let us know what is the whole matter and due to which disease he had to face this serious problem.
How insects were born inside the nose
Doctors believe that there is moisture in the nostrils and if a person does not pay attention to the cleanliness of the nose, then flies that are attracted by the odor can lay eggs inside the nose, which later turn into insects .
Nose worms can reach the brain
Doctors believe that if the worms are not removed, they can reach the brain and damage brain tissue. The eye is directly connected to the brain, and if the eye is involved it can lead to infection.
Worms can be in these parts of the body
Such worms can also occur in the nose, ears, tracheostomy wounds, face and gums, according to 2021 research from the Journal of Nepal Medical Association. Research has also found that different types of risk factors and diseases in patients also make them more vulnerable to this condition.
These symptoms were visible in the patient
He had been experiencing bleeding nose and swelling in his left eye for three days. After investigation, worms were found in his nose and eyes. Because of this, one of his eyes had completely died and was causing his pain. However, all the insects have been removed and the condition of the patient is better now. It was learned that the patient had been treated elsewhere three months ago. She had a swelling in one eye once before due to similar symptoms. Because of this, his eye had suffered a lot.
The name of this problem is Nasal myiasis.
According to a report by NCBI, Nasal myosis is the invasion of the nostrils by fly larvae. This can damage the tissue of the affected area, not only that it can lead to many fatal complications.
Which people are more at risk
Scientists believe that this problem is common in tropical countries like India. Hot and humid weather is a major reason for this and this problem can be seen more in older people, especially women. Those who do not pay attention to the cleanliness of the nose are prone to it.
