Enterobius vermicularis is one of the world's largest nematode infections, also known as pinworm infections. In the beginning, E. vermicularis was termed as Oxyuris vermicularis. Human beings are this infection's only known host. In people who reside in cramped conditions which typically take place in households, the transfer takes place. The worms are thin, thready and white. The worm is known after the pin-like tail on the back of the woman's worms. In children typically, pinworm infestation takes place. It is transmitted through direct contact or even during sexual contact with contaminated products. Asymptomatic for certain diseases. Recurrences are normal although the cure rate is strong. Some persons with an infection are asymptomatic, while others have specific symptoms like sleeplessness and perianal itching. This parasite may influence the cognitive function of children following re-infection and persistent infection. In rare cases, this virus induced serious effects and even mortality of the kidneys and Fallopian tubes (Park et al., 2005; Lee et al., 2011; Serpytis and Seinin, 2012; Li et al., 2015).
