Woman's selfies capture moving lump on face: a parasite

Doctors say a woman who complained of a moving bump on her face, actually had a worm underneath her skin.

The unnamed woman first noticed the lump just below her right eye.

What happened next will quite literally make your skin crawl - within a few days, the lump had moved above her eye.

The 32-year-old woman likely caught the worm, a type of nematode, when she was bitten by mosquitoes in a rural area outside Moscow, her doctor said.

The freaky condition that the 32-year-old Russian woman suffered from eventually ended up being a case study in the New England Journal of Medicine.

According to Rostov State Medical University's Dr. Vladimir Kartashev, who treated the woman, there have been over 4,000 cases of humans being infected with Dirofilaria repens since 1997 in Russian Federation and Ukraine.

Specifically, the woman had a parasitic worm, whose movement she tracked in selfies.

Fortunately, the worm is not found in the USA however there are other creepy crawlies lurking about to be concerned about.

The worms are able to go under human skin and appear as lumps, with the bulges moving in 35 percent of the cases.

The parasite is usually found in dogs and other carnivores and finds its way inside them through mosquito bite, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In humnans, D. repens usually manifests as either a wandering worm in the subcutaneous tissue or a granulomatous nodule, although there are reports of pulmonary dirofilariasis with this species.

But humans can become accidental hosts of the thread-like worm - meaning the worm doesn't intend to infect a human.

The woman reported having no other symptoms.

This specific parasite is not found in the USA, but can be found in Europe. They tend to be found in parts of Europe, Asia, and Africa, where they've been known to grow up to 170 millimeters long and live up to 10 years. He said that since 1997, there have been more than 4,000 human cases reported in these countries, particularly in Russian Federation and Ukraine.
