[Correspondence] Strongyloides stercoralis: the need for accurate information – Authors’ reply

We thank Dora Buonfrate and colleagues for their interest in our Seminar on soil-transmitted helminth (STH) infections.1 We appreciate their highlighting the importance of strongyloidiasis, which is often overlooked because of the poor sensitivity of standard stool examinations to detect Strongyloides stercoralis. For this reason, we noted in the Seminar that more sensitive techniques, such as the Baermann stool concentration or Koga agar plate culture, are often needed to confirm diagnosis. We agree that more sensitive tests for S stercoralis, including serologic assays and PCR, should be used when available.
