You Hungary? Hungry?

This week's New England Journal of Medicine has a fantastic video clip that you should not look at if you're hungry.
The case is of a 55 year old man who presented with intermittent, crampy pain in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen. The pain had started two days after his return from a two-week trip to Hungary

He had a colonoscopy done.

Have a look at the video clip - it's the most interesting colonoscopy I've ever seen - there's a load of Enterobius Vermicularis in the cecum. (I'm not telling you what they are - have a look - bewarned it is kinda gross)
