Brief Answer:
Yes.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

It is specifically seen in persons who have very high load of worms. If the worm load is high patient may vomit out worms.
This is especially seen after taking medicines for worms.
If you have not taken any drug for worms then please go to stool examination to see ova or adult worm.
