How is pinworm infection diagnosed?

The clinical diagnosis can be confirmed by the parent finding the small worms on the skin around the anus at night. A piece of sticky tape (Sellotape) should be placed against the anus and surrounding skin during the night and then immediately removed. In this way eggs can be collected and identified under a microscope.
