Abstract: Intestinal obstruction may be duo to various mechanical or functional reasons. Worms, especially Ascaris worms are one of the mechanical reasons of intestinal obstruction. Obstruction due to Taenia saginata is a rare phenomenon. Here we report a case of intestinal obstruction due to Taenia saginata infection in a 30 year-old male patient undergoing laparatomy with the diagnosis of intestinal obstruction. The cause of intestinal obstruction was unknown initially, but during milking of intestinal contents through naso- gastric tube a Taenia saginata worm was accidentally detected in the tube. Keywords: Intestinal obstruction, Taenia saginata
