Moreover, ERCP provides a therapeutic option for ascariasis, fascioliasis, and some forms of hydatidosis.
The presentation of ascariasis depends on the involvement of the organ ex lungs, hepatobiliary system, renal, central nervous system.
Ascariasis must be suspected in children from endemic regions of the world presenting with acute abdomen.
Divided by region, China, Korea, and Vietnam carry the highest incidence of ascariasis and subsequently higher rates of hemobilia secondary to this infection [29].
Evidence from systematic reviews and meta-analyses of WASH interventions in poor communities with unsafe water and inadequate sanitation has shown that interventions can reduce the risk of diarrheal diseases [6,7] and water related diseases including ascariasis, dracunculiasis, hookworm infection, schistosomiasis, and trachoma [12, 13].
Ascariasis was present in all age groups, with detection rates from 21.5% to 27.3% in different age groups in 2014 and from 16.2% to 38% in 2015 (Figure 2).

103 (48.1%) of the 214 stool specimens were positive; of these, 68 (31.8%) were with unspecified bacteria and 35 (16.4%) contain amoeba, giardia, and ascariasis. Out of 303 patients, 85.5% of stools were nonbloody and 14.5% have blood in stools (Figure 2).
