Abstract

Genital enterobiasis is caused by migration of adult females or larvae of Enterobius vermicularis (E. vermicularis). Adult female E. vermicularis migrate to the genital organs after laying eggs at perianal area. The eggs in the perianal will hatch into larvae and walk into the anus. In female patients, the chance of larval entry into the genital is greater because it is located adjacent to the anal. A larvae of E. vermicularis was found in direct urine of a 19-year-old female student. There were no other signs and symptoms of enterobiasis in her. This ectopic enterobiasis in genital tract was the first report in Indonesia.
