Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Nine patients with radiological changes due to Strongyloides stercoralis (SS) are described. A wide variation in appearance exists ranging from mild edema of the duodenal and small bowel mucosa to grossly enlarged, prominent valvulae conniventes. Small bowel dilatation is significant, and in overwhelming infestation toxic dilatation with paresis results. Spasm, ulceration, and stricture are encountered in addition. The appearances usually improve and reverse with treatment. Ampullary involvement is responsible for reflux of barium into the pancreatic duct and biliary tree through a patulous sphincter. In 1 patient the colonic changes resembled ulcerative colitis.
