Human strongyloidiasis due to the primate species Strongyloides fuelleborni



Human strongyloidiasis due to the primate species Strongyloides fuelleborni



Tropical and Geographical Medicine 32(1): 23-29



Of a total of 448 Strongyloides sp. infections identified in routine human faecal examinations over a 7-month period, as many as 138 (30.8%) were considered to be due to S. fuelleborni. Infection was common in both sexes and in all age groups in urban and peri-urban areas in Zambia, indicating transmission in the absence of a primary definitive host. The high proportion of cases suggests that S. fuelleborni is perhaps endemic to man, rather than being a zoonosis. Egg counts indicated low parasitic loads.
