Unknown Pink and White Organisms Found by Reader: Where He Can Go for Further Information

“Can anyone tell me what stage and type of worm or worm pupa these could be?” asks this reader in his submission regarding the various organisms pictured below. “Any ID help would be greatly appreciated!”

No further context is provided along with these pictures, which are also of quite low resolution. As such, we will not be able to identify these critters. The closest thing that these resemble is some of the organisms/tissue that past readers have sent in, who believe that they are experiencing a parasitic infection. We are not suggesting that this is the case for our reader: we would not be qualified to make such an inference, as we are not medical professionals. However, given that our reader provides no context as to where the creatures were found, we have to take every possibility into account.

If our reader believes that these creatures came from his body, then we recommend that he consult a medical parasitologist, as they are qualified and equipped to diagnose and treat such infections (more so than a GP or ER doctor). What we can recommend is that our reader do one or more of the following:
1) Search for a medical parasitologist in his area using this directory of medical parasitology consultants: https://www.astmh.org/for-astmh-members/clinical-consultants-directory.
2) Search for a local parasitologist by doing a Google search for “medical parasitologist (name of the closest big city)” or “tropical medicine specialist (name of the closest big city)”.
3) Get in touch with Dr. Omar Amin at the Parasitology Center at https://www.parasitetesting.com.
In conclusion, we do not know what these creatures are, as the lack of context and low-quality photos make it nearly impossible to get any grasp on their identity. Nonetheless, we hope that some of the suggestions we made in this article prove useful, and we wish our reader the very best!
