On day 2 of admission, sputum sample was sent for culture and acid-fast stain (AFB) staining, where numerous rhabditiform
larvae of strongyloides (2-4/lpf) were observed, but acid-fast bacilli were not detected (Figures 1-3).
Strongyloidiasis can be diagnosed by identifying rhabditiform
larvae upon microscopic examination of the stool by direct smear, or by culturing on agar plates.
were characterized by the presence of rhabditiform
eggs, larvae, and adults on cross sections.
Strongyloides infection, in contrast, can lead to autoinfection in which rhabditiform
larvae can re-penetrate the gastrointestinal mucosa or the perianal skin.
Though some amount of work has been done in some parts of world with regards to etiology, diagnosis and treatment of parasitic otitis in cows, sparse information is available on occurrence of parasitic otitis in buffaloes, while no reports are available on record with regards to incidence of Rhabditiform
otitis in India.
They produce eggs, which are deposited in intestinal mucosa where they hatch into rhabditiform
and filariform larvae were isolated by stool culture (Figure, panel B).
They produce eggs which hatch in situ yielding the rhabditiform

stercoralis in fresh faeces using direct smear which have characteristics of a rhabditiform
oesophagus with slight anterior and posterior swellings and sizes of 250-350 um (Zajac and Conboy, 2006).
The parasite is, then, swallowed and penetrates the duodenal wall where rhabditiform
larvae hatch from the eggs to be expelled in feces; and restart the asexual cycle in soil.
Characteristic of Halicephalobus deletrix, a rhabditiform
esophagus containing a corpus, isthmus, and bulb was observed (Figure 2, E).
