Abstract

The literature reports 12 cases of enterobiasis presenting as perianal abscess or granuloma. We describe an additional case of a perianal granuloma containing Enterobius vermicularis eggs in a 5-year-old boy. We suggest routine parasite screening for all children presenting with this condition.
