Among the extra intestinal enterobiasis, involvement of vagina, uterus, fallopian tubes, peritoneal surfaces and surfaces of ovaries are the common sites and it infrequently involves the ovarian parenchyma. Chronic enterobiasis of urinary tract is an extremely rare phenomenon. Here we report a case of recurrent genito-urinary enterobiasis. The ova and larvae were demonstrated on two out of three occasions from the patient’s deposits. This 20 year old female patient was treated with local piprazin citrate for 8 days and the treatment was found to be successful. This is a first report of its kind in which larvae were demonstrated in urine and local treatment was successfully applied.
