Abstract:

Strongyloides stercoralis is a soil transmitted helminth and one among the under recognised tropical parasitic diseases. It is undoubtedly known that it causes hyperinfection and disseminated disease in people with any form of compromise in their immunity. On the other hand, here we report an adult male who is notimmunocompromised but still tends to have hyperinfection syndrome.


Keywords: Strongyloides, hyperinfection, immunocompetent, culture.
