strongylosis

infestation of horses with large strongyles (Strongylus edentatus, S. equinus and S. vulgaris), Triodontophorus spp., Oesophagodontus spp. and some members of the genera Cyclostephanus, Cyathostomum, Cylicocyclus, and the genera Cylicodontophorus, Cylindropharynx, Gyalocephalus and Poteriostomum.

The small strongyles can cause severe enteritis and diarrhea. Called also redworm infestation.
