JOURNAL TITLE: An International Journal Clinical Rhinology
Leech infestations are known as hirudiniasis.1 Leeches are blood-sucking hermaphroditic parasites that vary in color and range in length from a few millimeters to half a meter. They enter the human body through drinking water, and localize on the mucosa of the upper aerodigestive tract.2 In this paper, we present a case with one month history of intermittent epistaxis and nasal obstruction. The cause was found to be a leech in the nose by means of endoscopic examination. We used an easy method to remove the parasite.
