ABSTRACT

Strongylodiasis is an intestinal parasitic infection which can cause cataclysmic hyper infection syndrome in immunocompromised. Here we report an interesting and rare case of gastroduodenal strongyloidiasis presenting as protein losing enteropathy which was promptly diagnosed and dramatically reversed with antihelminthic therapy. J Microbiol Infect Dis 2020; 10(4): 237-239.

Keywords: Strongyloidiasis, protein losing enteropathy, hyperinfection
