Resumen

CALVOPINA, Manuel et al. Chronic and severe anemia caused by Ancylostoma duodenale in Ecuador. Diagnosis by duodenoscopy. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.5, pp.499-501. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-10182017000500499.

For 11 years, a 38-year-old male residing in a subtropical region of Ecuador, was repeatedly diagnosed with chronic anemia, and treated with blood transfusions in a hospital of province of Cotopaxi, Ecuador. He was transferred to Quito for severe anemia, having hemoglobin of 4 g/dL. Duodenoscopy was performed and adult nematodes, identified later as Ancylostoma duodenale, were observed. The patient was successfully treated with albendazole for five consecutive days and given blood transfusions. In the control visit at eight months, without anemia and no hookworm ova in the stool examined were found.

Palabras clave : Hookworm; Ancylostoma duodenale; anemia; duodenoscopy; Ecuador.
