    There are probably more workers afflicted. Remember, most of these workers are undocumented migrants. They probably don't have the best access to medical care. And remember in the story in that article the difficulty the doctors had in getting the problem diagnosed. It's a rare parasite in the US and the doctor wasn't entirely sure what it was. If the woman hadn't noticed the tiny worm, and had it sent off to the CDC for analysis, the affliction might have never been diagnosed.
