Doctor Removes 80 Worms From This Little Girl's Ear After Infection. Graphic Photos

A four-year-old girl has had 80 worms removed from her ear after an insect attracted to foul smells and dirty conditions entered the orifice. Radhika Mandloi, from a small village in Dhar, Madhya Pradesh, in central India, had started to suffer extreme pain and itching in her left ear a week ago.
At first, her parents thought she was over reacting. But when she started crying continuously they eventually took her to MY Hospital in Indore on October 8.

Dr Raj Kumar Mundra, head of the ear, nose and throat department at the hospital, gave her a thorough examination and was shocked to find an insect called Genus Chrysomya inside her ear, which had laid nearly 80 eggs.

The girl had to endure two sittings to remove the 80 worms, each lasting nearly 90 minutes.

Radhika is still at the hospital and will be kept under close observation for the next seven days.
