The ICD code B68 is used to code Tapeworm infection

Tapeworm infection is the infestation of the digestive tract by a species of parasitic cestodal flatworm called tapeworms. Live tapeworm larvae (coenuri) are sometimes ingested by consuming undercooked food. Once inside the digestive tract, a larva can grow into a very large adult tapeworm. Additionally, many tapeworm larvae cause symptoms in an intermediate host. For example, cysticercosis is a disease involving larval tapeworms in the human body.
