           Rhabdias/Strongyloides larvae in fresh feces

    Rhabdias/Strongyloides larvae found in fresh feces. It is virtually impossible to differentiate these two parasites except by clinical history. Rhabdias is primarily a parasite of the respiratory system, and Strongyloides a parasite of the GI tract. Fortunately, they are easily treated with the same anthelmintics.
