LP14846-7   Strongyloides sp
Strongyloidiasis is a parasitic disease caused by Strongyloides nematodes (roundworms), that enter the body through exposed skin, such as bare feet. It is most common in tropical or subtropical climates. Two species of Strongyloides infect humans, S. stercoralis and S. fuelleborni. Most people do not know they are infected and have no symptoms. Others may develop a severe form and, if untreated, become critically ill and potentially die. Symptoms include; stomachache, bloating, and heartburn, intermittent episodes of diarrhea and constipation, nausea and loss of appetite, dry cough, throat irritation, an itchy, red rash that occurs where the worm entered the skin, and recurrent raised red rash typically along the thighs and buttocks. Rarely, severe life-threatening forms of the disease called hyperinfection syndrome and disseminated strongyloidiasis can occur. These forms of the disease are more common in people who are on corticosteroids (prednisone for example) or other immunosuppressive therapies.
