What started as headaches turned out to be something much worse for this mom from Texas.
A woman who had been suffering from severe headaches and blurry vision was horrified when she found out that the cause – numerous tapeworm larvae sacs growing in her brain.
Yadira Rostro first started to notice bad headaches nine months ago and finally sought medical help after they continued to get worse. Doctors then made the gruesome discovery and operated to remove the parasites from her brain.
I started having headaches several times. Sometimes my sight was impaired and I could not see properly. I never imagined I would have something in my head,” said Rostro.
Doctors revealed that the 31-year-old Yadira Rostro had sacs of larvae living inside her brain, which they believe that Rostro got on a trip to Mexico two years ago.
