Abstract

The farmers were the main infected people. Patients with basic diseases or with immunosuppression due to long-term glucocorticoid treatment tend to infect and even die after the infection with Strongyloides stercoralis. Eosinophil granulocyte reduction shows poor prognosis, which needs early diagnosis and treatment.
