Worm inside a woman's brain, is that possible? Sounds fake, doesn't it? But it is true [watch the video of the worm removal below] . Arizona doctors removed a worm inside Rosemary Alvarez brain.

Initially, it was thought to be a brain tumor. However, cat scan came up clear. On a video of the surgery, Dr. Peter Nakaji can be heard chuckling after he made the discovery of a worm deep down in her brain stem.

Doctors removed the worm and don't believe Alvarez will have any lingering health problems. No one knows exactly where she picked up the worm –- doctors said worms can come from eating undercooked pork or spread by people who don’t wash their hands after using the bathroom, according to the report.

Personally, this is the first time that I've heard a worm entering a human brain. Although this is a rare case, but the fact that it can happen to anyone because of improper or lack of hygiene, scares the heavens out of me.
