Doctors In #Peru Use Basil To Lure #Worm Out Of Boys Eye

Posted: June 4, 2015 in Culture

A 17-year old boy from Peru’s central Huanuco department gave a new meaning to a worm’s eye view when he arrived at the National Children’s hospital in Lima with a very swollen left eye.

Doctors soon discovered that a worm was responsible for the swelling after having been living in the boy’s eye for about a month. They were able to make the discovery after taking an MRI of the young man, whose name was not mentioned in media reports.
