(Roundworm infection)

Strongyloidiasis is an infection with Strongyloides stercoralis. It comes to clinical symptoms of rash, pulmonary disorders (incl. Coughing and wheezing), eosinophilia and abdominal pain with diarrhea. The diagnosis is made in blood by the detection of larvae in stool or intestinal contents or occasionally in sputum or by the detection of antibodies. The treatment is carried out with ivermectin or albendazole.

Strongyloidiasis occurs in the tropics and subtropics endemic, incl. Rural areas of the southern United States, exist in places where unprotected skin with contaminated soil comes in contact or unsanitary conditions. Strongyloides f├╝lleborni which chimpanzees and baboons infected, can lead to limited human infections.

Released eggs hatch in the intestinal lumen and set juvenile (rhabditiforme) forms of larvae free. Most of the larvae are excreted in the stool. After a few days in the ground, they develop into infectious filamentous larvae. How hookworms penetrate the human skin Strongyloides larvae migrate through the bloodstream to the lungs, pass over through the pulmonary capillaries into the alveoli, hiking up the bronchial tree, are swallowed and reach the intestine where they mature in about 2 weeks. In the ground to larvae that have no contact with humans, can develop into free-living adult worms that can propagate over several generations before their larvae infest a human host again. Some rhabditiforme larvae transform still in the intestine into infectious filamentous larvae to that immediately pass again through the intestinal wall and shorten the development cycle by (internal auto-infection). Occasionally filamentous larvae are excreted in the stool and pass through the skin in the buttock and thigh area back into the body (external autoinfection). A autoinfection explains why strongyloidiasis can exist for many decades and is responsible for the extremely high worm burden of a hyper infection syndrome. Life cycle of Strongyloides.
