Abstract

We report the rare finding of Strongyloides stercoralis rhabditiform larvae in biliary fluid, here associated with cholecystitis and near total portal vein thrombosis. The role of S. stercoralis leading to atypical clinical presentations and difficulty diagnosing strongyloidiasis in such patients with appropriate geographic exposure is discussed.
