INTRODUCTION: Strongyloides infection is a parasitic infection that manifests after the inoculation of the skin from contaminated soil, which is then spread to the lungs and gastrointestinal tract. Pulmonary involvement can present as asthma, chronic bronchitis, diffuse alveolar hemorrhage and respiratory failure. Clinical presentation is variable and can range from hyperinfection syndrome to overwhelming disseminated disease.
