Oxyuris Ox·y·u·ris (ŏk'sĭ-yur'ĭs)
A genus of nematodes that contains certain species parasitic in the large intestine of humans.
The next nematode of general interest is the pinworm (oxyuris curvula).
Similar experiments with the ova of the oxyuris vermicularis and of the Toenia solium afforded corresponding results.
The most frequent intestinal parasite of rodents is probably oxyuris ambigua, but Strong.
The oxyuris vermicularis is by no means confined to young persons, seeing that adults are infested even to old age.
He describes the oxyuris vermicularis with knowledge manifestly derived from personal observation.
