Worm found in woman’s brain after she ate an expired food

A Texas woman who suffered terrible headaches checked herself into a hospital, where doctors discovered that worms were growing in her brain. 31-year-old Yadira Rostro of Garland, said that she suffered from headaches for a long time. After conducting tests, doctors found tapeworms and eggs growing in her brain. Dr. Richard Meyrat, a Neurosurgeon at the Methodist Dallas Medical Center, said that Rostro likely picked up the
parasite by ingesting food contaminated with fecal matter. 
Usually, the parasite passes through the body, but in the case of Rostro, it got into her bloodstream and then in her brain. Doctors at the Methodist Dallas Medical Center were able to extract the larvae, and they believe that she will make a full recovery soonest.
