    A disturbing case study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
    A teenager died from a tapeworm egg infestation in his brain.
    The 18-year-old had complained of seizures in the emergency room of an Indian hospital.
    According to the study, it was determined he had parasites in his brain.
    The larvae crawled out of the eggs and into tissue and formed cysts.
    In addition to cysts in his brain, doctors also found cysts in other parts of his body including his right eye.
    The number and location of the cysts made treatment difficult, and two weeks after his arrival in the ER, the patient died.

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    I feel badly for the kid, he must have suffered terribly before he died.

    India has come a long way in 40 years, but vast parts of the country are still living in 3rd world conditions.

    There is an almost insane gap between the wealthy in India and those in poverty. "Slumdog Millionaire" is not inaccurate in that respect.

    That may be India but I have read many an article of worm-infested sushi eaters here.
