In the early '80s, there were 3.2 million cases of Guinea worm — a two-feet long worm that emerges slowly — and excruciatingly — from a blister on the skin. "It may be doubted whether there are many other animals which have played so important a part in the history of the world as these lowly ... creatures. " That's what Charles Darwin said about earthworms. His quote applies to parasitic worms, too. This week Goats and Soda looks at the import of the lowly worm.

Toggle caption NPR A massive campaign, led by President Jimmy Carter, has eradicated the worm from all but four countries. "I'd like for the last Guinea worm to die before I do," President Carter told reporters last year.

Dracunculus medinensis. Dracunculus medinensis or Guinea worm is a nematode that causes dracunculiasis, also known as guinea worm disease.[1] The disease is caused by the large female nematode of D. medinensis,[2] which is among the longest nematodes infecting humans.[3] The adult female is primarily larger than the adult male. The longest adult female recorded was 800 mm (31 in), while the adult male was only 40 mm (1.6 in).[4] References[edit] External links[edit] Donors Commit $240 Million to Fight Neglected Diseases.

Dracunculiasis. Dracunculiasis, also called guinea worm disease (GWD), is an infection by the guinea worm.[1] A person becomes infected when he drinks water that contains water fleas infected with guinea worm larvae.[1] Initially there are no symptoms.[2] About one year later, the person develop a painful burning feeling as the female worm forms a blister in the skin, usually on the lower limb.[1] The worm then comes out of the skin over a few weeks.[3] During this time it may be difficult to walk or work.[2] It is very uncommon for the disease to cause death.[1] Signs and symptoms[edit] Dracunculiasis can migrate to the foot. Dracunculiasis is diagnosed by seeing the worms emerging from the lesions on the legs of infected individuals and by microscopic examinations of the larvae.[11] As the worm moves downwards, usually to the lower leg, through the subcutaneous tissues it leads to intense pain localized to its path of travel.

L'homme s'infeste en ingérant de l'eau, des crustacés aquatiques (des cyclops) infectés par la larve du ver. Les larves se libèrent dans le tube digestif, et migrent vers le tissu sous-cutané. Au bout de plusieurs mois, quand la peau est en contact avec de l'eau, le ver femelle (de très grande taille) s'abouche à la peau pour libérer des nouvelles larves dans l'eau.
