The Vietnamese girl from Phin Ngan began to complain about discomfort in her nasal region.
Doctors believe the worm became lodged in the girl’s nose while she drank water from a stream. The worm was likely much smaller when she initially inhaled it and then grew in size while stuck in her nasal cavity.
Using a small pincer, the doctor removed the slithering creature in a procedure that was caught on video.
She remained calm while the doctor held her head in one hand and what looked like a device used to look inside the nasal cavity in the other.
The doctor then inserted the thin pincer and extracted the worm, which was wiggling and very much alive.
The girl did not show much emotion as the doctor held up the worm for her to see.
