Abstract

Angioedema can be a complication of disseminated strongyloidiasis. Although uncommon, parasites need to be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with angioedema of unknown origin, particularly if they are from endemic areas or are immunosuppressed. Only through increased awareness of the diverse manifestations of Strongyloides can it be appropriately diagnosed and treated.
