ABSTRACT: We report a case of disseminated strongyloidiasis with parasitemia in a 53-year-old man under corticosteroid therapy. It occurred more than 16years after contamination and led to severe sepsis and acute respiratory failure with P. aeruginosa pneumonia. The patient recovered after specific treatment (thiabendazole followed by albendazole) and antibacterial drugs.
