Pelodera strongyloides is a free-living soil nematode of the order Rhabditida. We report an 18-year-old man with P strongyloides skin infestation. In this case, pruritic follicular papulopustules developed on the buttocks, then the right flank. Skin scrapings revealed many live rhabditiform larvae that were cultured adult worms and hatched ova, identified as P strongyloides . The eruption was treated effectively with topical 1% gamma-hexachlorocyclohexane ointment.
