Dr Peter Nakaji said, "Once we saw the MRI we realised this is something not good. It's something down in her brain stem which is as deep in the brain as you can be."

On a video of the woman's operation, Dr. Nakaji was seen laughing upon seeing the worm.

He commented, "I'm sure this is a very strange response for the people in the operating room.
