Shocking video has emerged which shows a baby so badly infested with worms that the creatures are eating holes in her face.
The four-month-old is so badly infested that she cannot open her right eye and the worms be seen wriggling in a wound by her left ear.
She was hospitalized at Cosme e Damião Children's Hospital in Porto Velho, Rondônia, Brazil, media outlet News Rondonia reports.
And the worms have been feeding on the tiny child's flesh.
Her desperate mother rushed the child to hospital on Tuesday morning but by the next day, the open wound by her ear had already increased in size.
