Meaning of Guineaworms
Dracunculus medinensis or Guinea worm is a nematode that causes dracunculiasis, also known as guinea worm disease. A person becomes infected when they drink water that contains water fleas infected with guinea worm larvae. Initially there are no symptoms. About one year later, the person develops a painful burning feeling as the female worm forms a blister in the skin, usually on the lower limb. The worm then comes out of the skin over the course of a few weeks. - See link
