Doctors in Arizona got a big surprise when looking into a womans brain for a tumor.
Rosemary Alvarez started experiencing numbness in her arm and blurred vision. She went to the emergency room twice and had a cat scan, but everything came up clear, MyFOXPhoenix.com reported.
It wasnâ€™t until doctors took a closer look at an MRI that they discovered something very disturbing.
â€œOnce we saw the MRI we realized this is something not good,â€ neurosurgeon, Dr. Peter Nakaji told the news station. â€œIt’s something down in her brain stem which is as deep in the brain as you can be.â€
Alvarez was wheeled into surgery where Nakaji and his colleagues were expecting to remove a tumor, but they uncovered a worm instead.
On a video of the surgery, Nakaji can be heard chuckling after he made the discovery.Â All I can say is yuk!Â That is totally gross.
