Doctors say the patient is stable - but "an enormous number" of worms in his body are contaminating his wounds and making his situation worse.
His condition is thought to give a rare insight into life in North Korea.
"I've never seen anything like this in my 20 years as a physician," South Korean doctor Lee Cook-jong told journalists, explaining that the longest worm removed from the patient's intestines was 27cm (11in) long.

Also I read that much of the time they didn't dry or cure it first. As a result it's probable that the worm/parasite problem is now endemic to most of the DPRK population.

Raggamuffin - 2017-11-30 A great book on life in NK is "Without You There Is No Us" by Suki Kim. Kim pretended to be a missionary school teacher and she taught the children of some of North Korea's elite for two school years.
