From April 1988 to March 1989 an extensive search was carried out for the uncommon intestinal parasites like Strongyloides stercoralis and Trematodes in Northern India. Stool Samples were concentrated by the formal-ether centrifugation method and three cover slip mounts were made instead of one daily for 3-5 days. Following this method rhabtidiform larvae of Strongyloides, stercoralis were found in stool samples of 10 patients out of 2100 odd samples examined. Interestingly 7 out of these 10 patients had resided in Kumaun region of Uttar Pradesh from where Strongyloides, stercoralis has never been reported earlier. These patients were followed up and treated with Mebendazole but the drug was found ineffective and all patients required Thiabendazole. The clinical and demographic features of these patients are detailed.
