Pts can remain asymptomatic for very long period of times.The commonest presentations are diarrhoea,foul breath,dark circles under the eyes,constipation,constant desire for food,restlessness at night,anemia.
If you encounter such symptoms then you must administer your child with albendazole syp 200mg stat dose at night before going to bed and repeat the same dose after one week.
