Purple worm is a type of monster in ADOM. Like all worms they are capable of rapidly duplicating themselves, and can grow to huge numbers if left unchecked for too long (particularly if the PC is resting to regain HP). Their attacks are weak but can poison the PC, which can make swarms of purple worms particularly dangerous to PCs early in the game since counts of poisonings stack.

This large purple squirming thing drips with slime. Eggs that it has laid are hatching rapidly-growing copies of it.
