HERES, Marcela et al. Hiperinfección por strongyloides stercoralis. Rev. am. med. respir. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.3, pp.00-00. ISSN 1852-236X.

Strongyloidiasis is an endemic parasitic disease that causes benign gastrointestinal symptoms. In immunocompromised patients, hyperinfection syndrome or disseminated forms can developed. We present two cases of hyperinfection in HIV-positive patients. This entity is rare in AIDS patients and can cause alveolar hemorrhage. The bronchoscopy is useful to confirm the etiology and possible coinfection.

Keywords : Strongyloides stercoralis; Hyperinfection syndrome; AIDS; HIV.
