Strongyloidiasis
Prevention and Control
  • To prevent Strongyloides infections, contact of bare skin with contaminated soil should be avoided.
    Proposed measures: wearing shoes, reduce faecal contamination of soil by sanitation (installation of latrines, personal hygiene).
  • Health education is essential
  • Careful diagnostic investments and treatment before immunosuppressive treatment is started in patients who were exposed in the past (even if they have been outside endemic areas for 40 years!)
