Ascaris lumbricoides is one of the most common and most widespread helminthic infections of humans. Infection with ascaris appears to be asymptomatic in the vast majority of cases, but may produce serious pulmonary disease or obstruction of biliary or intestinal tract in a small proportion of infected people. We examined under the light of literature this case which caused the granulomatous peritonitis by ascaris, the adult worm, without any evidence of intestinal perforation.
