Girl Has Bugs on Her Brain

Usually when someone says they have something on their mind, they mean there is something they have been thinking about or pondering. However, when 12-year-old Shreya Darji says she’s got ants on her mind, she means she literally has ants crawling all over her head. When the girl complained about having ear pain last August her parents took her to the doctor expecting the problem would be a simply ear infection that could be treated with some antibiotics. They discovered the situation was infinitely more complicated than that, however.

Doctors discovered an entire ant colony was living inside of the girl’s head, with hundred of ants crammed inside. About a dozen ants crawl out of her ears everyday, which is no doubt seriously disturbing and not just a little creepy. Doctors can’t seem to figure out how to get rid of them either. They have tried everything from trying to drown them by flushing her ears with antiseptic to inserting laparoscopic cameras in her ear to try and find and kill the queen. Alas, an answer to this buggy problem has yet to be found. Thankfully, the ants don’t seem to be causing any serious damage, but I don’t know that I’d be too thrilled about sharing my head space with a colony of ants.

Have you heard of any other weird cases of insects living inside of humans
