During December 1954 and January 1955, a series of stool specimens from a pediatric patient was forwarded from the U. S. Army Hospital at Fort George G. Meade, Maryland to the Second Army Area Medical Laboratory for routine examination for parasites and ova. These specimens contained adults of the pinworm, Enterobius vermicularis, and eggs of a trichurid nematode too large to agree with measurements for eggs of Trichuris trichura or Capillaria hepatica.
