His Special Case Report on Strongyloidiasis

Strongyloides stercoralis, a soil-transmitted threadworm, is one of the most underappreciated helminth illnesses. It is found throughout the world, although it is more common in hot and humid regions, as well as resource-poor nations with poor sanitation. Due to the difficulty of diagnosing and the irregular excretion of larvae, infection rates are underreported. Clinical symptoms range from asymptomatic infection to hyper-infection syndrome (HIS) and widespread Strongyloidiasis, which can be deadly. Dr. Alok Mantri treated a patient who had gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) as a result of S. stercoralis infestation and had responded to anti-helminthic treatment.

A 23-year-old woman came to our hospital with four weeks of non-bilious vomiting. During the same period, the frequency of vomitus steadily rose from 2-3 times per day to 6-8 times per day. There had been no stomach discomfort, hematemesis, melena, or fever in the past. CECT abdomen revealed thickening of the gastric antral wall with the normal small intestine. Edema and nodularity in the antrum and first portion of the duodenum (D1), as well as moderate constriction at the D1-D2 junction, were discovered during upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (UGIE). The antrum and duodenal bulb were biopsied several times. Multiple larvae of S. stercoralis were seen penetrating the lamina propria of the duodenum and antrum on histology. For 6 weeks, she was given a 6 mg pill of ivermectin once a day. Her symptoms began to improve one week after she began using ivermectin, and she was asymptomatic after six weeks.

A diagnosis of Strongyloidiasis is extremely difficult but Dr. Mantri’s excellence and intelligence paved the way for quick diagnosis and prompt treatment and recovery.
