About this section


NIH Rare Diseases:43 Strongyloidiasis is a parasitic disease caused by the roundworm strongyloides stercoralis (s. stercoralis). people catch the infection when they come in contact with soil contaminated with the worms. while there are often no symptoms, abdominal pain, cough, diarrhea, rash, unintentional weight loss and vomiting may occur. the infection is treated with anti-worm medications such as ivermectin. strongyloidiasis is found in tropical and subtropical areas, but can also be found in temperate regions, including the southern united states. last updated: 9/20/2010

MalaCards based summary: Strongyloidiasis, also known as disseminated strongyloidiasis, is related to eosinophilia and meningitis. An important gene associated with Strongyloidiasis is IL5 (interleukin 5 (colony-stimulating factor, eosinophil)), and among its related pathways are Inflammatory Response Pathway and Cytokine Network. The drugs ivermectin and thiabendazole and the compounds clarithromycin and pirfenidone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, lung and t cells, and related mouse phenotypes are tumorigenesis and liver/biliary system.

Disease Ontology:10 A parasitic helminthiasis infectious disease that involves infection of the intestine, lungs, skin and central nervous system with nematode strongyloides stercoralis.

CDC:4 Strongyloidiasis was first described in French troops stationed in modern day Vietnam during the late 19th century who were suffering from severe, persistent diarrhea. It is a parasitic disease caused by nematodes, or roundworms, in the genus Strongyloides that enter the body through exposed skin, such as bare feet. Strongyloides is most common in tropical or subtropical climates.
