A leech in quarantine is seen in a jar at the Ricarimpex laboratory in Eysines
A leech in quarantine is seen in a jar at the Ricarimpex laboratory in Eysines, Southwestern France, July 22, 2016. The leech, Hirudo medicinalis, is an invertebrate 3 cm long in adulthood which after being considered indispensable in the 19th century to cure many affections such as osteoarthritis, phlebitis, tension, then fell in desuetude while it harboured qualities that made it indispensable today in plastic surgery.

An employee of the International Medical Leech Centre demonstrates with a leech on her face in the village of Udelnaya, some 30 km (18.6 miles) from Moscow, December 4, 2009. The leech farm makes a tidy profit shipping them to doctors worldwide. Like many discarded elements of traditional medicine, they have made a come-back as doctors have re-discovered their pain-killing properties, which come from the chemicals they inject into the skin when they bite it. Several medical trials have proven leeches help relieve the symptoms of arthritis and other conditions. REUTERS/Denis Sinyakov (RUSSIA HEALTH SOCIETY)

An expert inspects a leech after it was used on a patient at the International Medical Leech Centre in the village of Udelnoye, some 30 kms from Moscow, December 23, 2003. Like many discarded elements of traditional medecine, leeches have made a come-back as doctors have re-discovered their pain-killing properties, which come from the chemicals they inject into the skin when they bite it. Several medical trials have proven leeches, hirudo medicinalis in medical Latin, help relieve the symptoms of arthritis and other conditions. The centre sells the leeches throughout the former Soviet Union and to the West. One leech would cost about three dollars in France, and up to 25 dollars in Canada.
