PARAVOOR: A 15-centimetre long worm has been removed from a woman’s eye through a surgery. The rare incident happened at Nedungolam B R Hospital. The woman hailing from Chathanur sought treatment after swelling in her eyelids.

She was subjected for checking at many hospitals but discomfort on the eye did not subside. She later approached Nedungolam B R Hospital. She was subjected for an emergency operation as Dr Satheesh felt something abnormal on examining her. The worm removed was dirofilaria which is found in domestic dogs. It would have been a dangerous situation if neglected, the doctor said. The worm has been sent for testing.
