A man had a crab surgically removed from his ear after it crawled into it while he was sunbathing on a beach in Abu Dhabi.
The 38-year-old, identified only as L.E., underwent an endoscopy to have the marine animal removed after relaxing by the sea on November 18 in the UAE.
& # 39; I was on the beach when I suddenly realized something was going in my ear. I couldn't figure out what it was. I could only feel that it was annoying. But I never thought it would be a crab, & the patient told Gulf News.
After being unable to diagnose the cause of the discomfort, which soon became an unbearable pain, he hurried to the hospital.
The 38-year-old, only identified as L.E., underwent an endoscopy to have the crab (photo) removed from his ear after he sunk on November 18.
& # 39; It was found that it was a live baby crab that had entered the right ear canal, & # 39; said Dr. Prabir Paul.
The ear canal was swollen and wrapped tightly around the crab.
An endoscope, a small optical tube, was inserted into his ear so that doctors could remove the bug without damaging the ear.
Dr. Paul said the patient was very lucky not to have a damaged ear.
In a statement L.E. said: & # 39; I was very worried when the doctor told me that a baby crab had entered my ear. I was afraid that my organ would be damaged.
& # 39; But I am grateful to the doctor for his quick action. His trust and kindness really helped me calm down. & # 39;
Earlier this year, a patient discovered a cockroach in her ear in Vietnam and suffered similar pain.
Video showed the doctor using an endoscope to find and remove the insect.
Philip Robinson, an otologist at the Bristol NHS Trust University Hospitals and president of the British Society of Otology, spoke earlier with MailOnline about the dangers of scary creepers in the ears.
He told MailOnline in October: & # 39; I only had to remove an insect in ENT once every 30 years.
Disgusting footage was recorded the moment a woman removed a cockroach from her ear in Vietnam in October
The cockroach still lived in the ear but was stuck. Pictured, dead after removal
& # 39; It is thought that a combination of the hairs in the entrance to the ear canal and the wax penetrates the skin as a barrier and deterrent to insects and even debris.
& # 39; The ear canal actually has its own clearing system, although it is damaged in people who use cotton swabs, but normally transport dust, debris from the depths of the ear canal to the outside world in a week or two.
& # 39; However, living insects can get stuck and there are reports that people are spinning over their eardrums causing a drum feeling. & # 39;
