FERREIRA, Carla Juliana Araújo et al. Fatal disseminated strongyloidiasis after kidney transplantation. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.5, pp. 652-654. ISSN 0037-8682.

Disseminated strongyloidiasis (DS) is a rare and severe parasitic disease that is difficult to recognize and affects immunocompromised individuals. We report the case of a kidney transplant recipient who presented with DS despite prophylaxis with albendazole. We have discussed the need for better prophylactic strategies and for a higher degree of suspicion in order to diagnose DS.
