This is far from my area of expertise, so I can not give a definitive
answer.  However, I remember seeing a number of articles in the literature
reporting on "virus-like particles" in various species of helminths.  I do
not know if these "virus-like particles" have every been shown to actually
be viruses, and I do not know if pathogenic bacteria have every been found
in helminth parasites.
