Summaries for Strongyloidiasis

NIH Rare Diseases : 54 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.

MalaCards based summary : Strongyloidiasis, also known as disseminated strongyloidiasis, is related to schistosomiasis and hypereosinophilic syndrome, and has symptoms including fever and pruritus. An important gene associated with Strongyloidiasis is IL5 (Interleukin 5), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Innate Immune System and TGF-Beta Pathway. The drugs Ivermectin and Albendazole have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, testes and t cells, and related phenotypes are hematopoietic system and immune system

Disease Ontology : 12 A parasitic helminthiasis infectious disease that involves infection of the intestine, lungs, skin and central nervous system with nematode Strongyloides stercoralis.

CDC : 3
