A 43 year old man likes to eat an almost completely raw meat for his daily dinners. Today he was astonished to see worm-like stuff coming out from his anus. His physician asked to examine the stool sample which revealed small structures looking like rice grain particles. Microscopic examination revealed proglottids. What is the best course of action for this patient?

A- Metronidazole 5 days treatment
B- No treatment is needed
C- Single dose of Niclosamide
D- Doxycycline 7 days treatment
E- Surgical removal of intestinal cysts

Update: this question turned out to be wrong see reply number 7 below

Sorry for the wrong question

If you don't mind me asking - where did you get this question? I'm curious because Niclosamide is no longer marketed in the US and it seems odd to have a question about it...
Oh my God, you are absolutely right. This question is definitely wrong. I didn't get it from anywhere, it's my make :(
