Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift › Tidsskriftartikel › Forskning › peer review
A case of fatal infection with Strongyloides stercoralis in a previously healthy young African with no known immunosuppression is reported. The patient suffered severe gastrointestinal bleeding and despite intensive treatment died of multiorgan failure. Postmortem, signs of ulcerating T-cell lymphoma were found in a jejunal specimen, and the patient was found to be infected with HTLV-1. Gastrointestinal bleeding in relation to infection with Strongyloides stercoralis is discussed as well as possible relations between the severity of infection, lymphoma and HTLV-1.
