Strongyloides stercoralis can cause hyperinfection syndrome and disseminated disease with high mortality, particularly in an immunocompromised patient. With the low diagnostic rate of S. stercoralis on stool examination, early endoscopic biopsy and histopathologic diagnosis of strongyloidiasis must be taken into consideration when examining duodenal biopsies from immunocompromised patients, to avoid the development of life-threatening infection.
