Abstract

This article illustrates a case of S stercoralis. This organism causes the disease strongyloidasis. Strongyloidasis is defined by acute manifestation, autoreinfection, or hyperinfection. It is contracted by skin penetration of the filariform larvae in the soil. Diagnosis and effective treatment is dependent on identification through special techniques with stool samples in the clinical laboratory.
