1/5. enterobius vermicularis and perianal sepsis in children.

    Specific aetiological factors are responsible for a significant proportion of cases of perianal sepsis in children. A rarely implicated pathogen is enterobius vermicularis, an obligate parasite with a ubiquitous presence in children. The authors describe two unequivocal instances of threadworm involvement in perianal sepsis, suggesting a pathophysiological basis.

2/5. Perianal mass and recurrent cellulitis due to enterobius vermicularis.

    A unique case of enterobiasis presenting as recurrent cellulitis and a perianal mass in a six-year-old girl is reported. Complicated perianal lesions due to enterobius are unusual. Only 10 previous cases are known, with unclear pathogenesis in most of them, although mucosal breaches and perianal crypt or gland entry have been postulated. The association of the mass in this case with a deep crypt, and the histopathologic finding of squamous epithelium focally surrounding the granulomatous reaction to the enterobius eggs suggest that the worm entered the perianal tissues via a crypt. Local secondary bacterial infection can cause significant morbidity. Surgical excision of such granulomatous mass lesions is necessary in symptomatic or complicated cases.

5/5. Perianal granuloma caused by enterobius vermicularis: report of a new observation and review of the literature.

    The literature reports 12 cases of enterobiasis presenting as perianal abscess or granuloma. We describe an additional case of a perianal granuloma containing enterobius vermicularis eggs in a 5-year-old boy. We suggest routine parasite screening for all children presenting with this condition.
