Abstract

Purpose of Review: There is increased recognition of Strongyloides infection in solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients. Our goal is to describe our experience and published cases of Strongyloides stercoralis infections in SOT recipients. Recent findings: Recently, three cases of Strongyloides stercoralis infections in solid organ transplant recipients have been identified at Baylor College of Medicine, St. Luke's Hospital, an 850-bed tertiary care center. Summary: We discuss prevalence and prevention strategies in solid organ transplant recipients.
