- n. A genus of parasitic worms. S. intestinalis is occasionally found in the human intestines.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
She has been extensively examined, and we have found that she suffered from a range of diseases including sand pneumoconiosis, a hydatid cyst in the lung, strongyloides and schistosomiasis (both parasitic diseases), and arthritis.
It mainly concerns ascaris, trichuris, ankylostoma and strongyloides.
- Look for a cause (e.g. insect bites, drug allergy, invasive stage of a parasitic infection of ascaris, hookworm, strongyloides, schisto-somiasis or loa-loa).
- Exclude parasitosis (strongyloides): stool examination.
There are also many other parasites that could potentially be detected, especially those that use proteases to infect their host, such as hookworm, guinea worm and strongyloides.
