 A 49-year-old female presented with pain in the right lower abdomen. On endoscopic examination of the large intestine, a parasite was observed in the ascending colon, which was similar to Anisakis larvae, but we could not distinguish it from other parasites. Finally, we diagnosed trichuriasis due to the characteristic parasitic form and eggs.
