Two very curious cases of pseudo-parasitism have recently come before my notice :—

Towards the middle of last year some centipedes were forwarded to me which had been vomited and passed by a women of 68 years of age. Some of the centipedes emerged through the patient's nose, and it must be mentioned that she was also suffering from a round worm. One of her doctors was of opinion that the centipedes were certainly breeding inside the lady's intestine, and as many as seven or eight, sometimes more, were daily leaving the alimentary canal.
