  • 1.  A fatal case of human strongyloidiasis complicating disseminated tuberculosis is presented, with autopsy findings.
  • 2.  The infection was acquired either in Poland or in Rochester, New York; if the former, the infection had maintained itself more than 30 years, through the mechanisms of autoinfection and/or hyperinfection. Further study is necessary to determine the northern limit of the parasite's natural range in this country.
  • 3.  The elimination of larval and adult worms from the patient, as proved at autopsy, was effected by 1.59 grams of gentian violet per os and 0.1 gram by vein.
  • 4.  The advisability of concentrating liquid stools in parasitological examination is emphasized.
  • 5.  pneumonitis and the possible rôle played by migrating larvae in the activation of inactive pulmonary tuberculosis are discussed.
  • 6.  as an etiologic agent in the production of certain types of large bowel tumors is discussed.
