Reactive arthritis associated with Strongyloides stercoralis: Report of an uncommon relation


"Considering the wide prevalence of Strongyloides infection throughout the world, the number of cases of ReA due to this organism is probably underestimated. Clinicians and microbiologists need to be aware of this clinical condition. Infection with S. stercoralis should be kept as a differential diagnosis of pathogens associated with ReA, to avoid inadvertent and inappropriate administration of corticosteroids in such cases, which can lead to fatal multiorganic dissemination of the parasite."
