REGUEIRA FERNANDES, Amanda et al. Clinical and epidemiological characteristics of strongyloidiasis in patients with comorbidities. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.1, pp.47-53. ISSN 0716-1018.

The strongyloidiasis is a parasitic disease that poses as a serious public health problem, mainly in tropical and subtropical countries. Over the years, some conditions, such as advances in corticosteroid treatment and immunosuppressive diseases, have improved not only the increase in cases of strongyloidiasis, but also the emergence of severe forms of the disease and / or deaths. For these reasons, the objective of this study is to make a critical analysis of the occurrence of strongyloidiasis in patients with comorbidities, describing clinical and epidemiological characteristics associated with these diseases that can highlight the importance of monitoring this parasitosis in most susceptible groups.

Keywords : Strongyloidiasis; clinical features; epidemiology; comorbidities; Public Health.
