The adult A lumbricoides is a large, cream-colored worm. Adult males are 6-12 inches (15-30cm) in length, and adult females are 8-14 inches (20-35cm) in length. Signs include passage of adult worm(s) from mouth or anus; wheezing (early infection); mild abdominal tenderness (established infection). Uncommon in the US (approximately 1.5% of people are infected, mainly in the rural southeast), it affects more than 25% of the population of Third World nations.
