X-Rays Show Man's Body Filled With Tape Worms From Eating Sushi

A Chinese man going to a doctor complaining of stomach aches and itchy skin was horrified to learn his body had become riddled with disgusting tapeworms, according to various international reports.

A doctor at a hospital in Guangzhou told the website the man was likely suffering from cysticercosis, which occurs when tapeworms enter a person's bloodstream. It can be fatal if the tapeworms reach the brain.

The man told doctors he'd consumed sashimi (raw fish sliced into thin pieces) recently and it's believed the fish was contaminated with tapeworm eggs.

Several X-rays of the patient, appearing on the website, show the man's body filled with the tiny parasites.
