Abstract

[Extract] Strongyloidiasis, caused by the intestinal helminth Strongyloides stercoralis, is commonly found in developing nations in tropical and subtropical regions. Strongyloidiasis was omitted by the World Health Organization (WHO) as one of the Soil Transmitted Helminths in their Neglected Tropical Diseases Roadmap and can therefore be considered one of the most neglected tropical diseases. Despite its reputation as a disease of developing countries, strongyloidiasis remains an important disease in Australia, particularly for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, and those living in remote communities.
