Epidemiologic investigations of Strongoloides stercoralis and human T lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) infections were conducted.
Of 312 persons contacted, 209 (67%) provided blood and stool samples.
Prevalences of S. stercoralis and HTLV-I antibodies were 26.8% and 8.1% (n=198), respectively, and S. stercoralis larvae were detected in 4%. HTLV-I antibodies were significantly more common in persons positive for S. stercoralis larvae (10 [58.8%] of 17) compared with seropositive larva-negative (4 [8.9%] of 45) or seronegative persons (9 [6.2%] of 145) (P<.002).
IgE levels increased with age in S. stercoralis-seropositive persons who were HTLV-I negative (P<.002).
