In brief: Parasitic hookworms

In people who walk barefoot, the hookworm can penetrate the sole of the foot and cause a lesion there.
The larva will then begin to mature while it moves towards the intestines. The hookworm will attach to the intestinal wall. Humans who have become infected can show symptoms of intestinal bleeding, abdominal pains, anemia, diarrhea, and malnutrition.
