Ascariasis is one of the most common helminthic infections in humans worldwide. The diseases is caused by the Ascaris lumbricoids, the largest nematode residing in the alimentary canal of humans. Ascariasis is endemic in the tropical and subtropical regions of the world with low standard of public health and hygiene. The center for diseases control and prevention (CDC) states that, approximately, 0.8-1.2 billion of the global population is infected with Ascaris lumbricoids currently. Usually, asymptomatic, Ascariasis commonly infects children’s and results in 3000–60 000 deaths every year, usually as a result of intestinal obstruction. Ascaris lives in the intestine and is passed through feces of the infected individual. Ascaris is transmitted by accidental ingestion of food, water and soil contaminated with Ascaris eggs. Ascaris infected individuals often do not show any symptoms. However, mild symptoms such as abdominal discomfort and cough may occur in some individuals. Cough in Ascariasis is generally due to the migration of the worm through the body.  Several other symptoms such as, intestinal blockage and impaired growth in children’s are perceptive in case of individuals with chronic Ascaris infection. Diagnosis of Ascariasis infection is done by visual examination of the Ascaris eggs or adult worms in the stool sample under the microscope. Anthelminthic medications, such as albendazole and mebendazole are highly recommended medications for treatment of Ascaris infection. According to the WHO, children’s with the Ascariasis prevalence exceeding 70% need to be treated once in a year, however, WHO advices a targeted treatment two to three times a year in case the helminthes is harboring an adult.

Poor personal hygiene and poor sanitation in underdeveloped countries is the prime factor contributing towards rising prevalence of this disease. However, adults are known to harbor the helminthes at a low intensity whereas the disease is highly prevalent in children’s. Accidental contact with soil contaminated with human feces, including with human fecal matter leads to spread of this disease among humans. Several health education initiatives conducted by CDC and World Health Organization (WHO) to reduce morbidity as opposed to eradicate helminthes is the prime area of concerns. Measures such as, maintenance of personal hygiene, implementing effective sewage disposal systems, avoiding open defection are few of the factors that will help to prevent the disease.
