A rare inaugural doctoral dissertation on worms delivered at the University of Strasbourg by Christophorus Wegelin. The generation of worms in the human body had preoccupied physicians since antiquity, especially their appearance in sores and dead bodies. Wegelin discusses worms such as tenia and fascicola intestinalis, analysing their presence in different body parts, including the brain. He also mentions the usefulness of specific baths for their extirpation.
