Intestinal nematodes are some of the most important parasitic infections worldwide leading to considerable morbidity and in some cases mortality in individuals infected. In endemic regions, malnutrition, stunting of linear growth, mental function, verbal ability, physical weakness, and low educational achievement in school children are well reported. During this session, Dr. Libman will review the clinical presentation and complications of common intestinal nematodes. He will also review the approach to diagnosis and management of intestinal nematodes in your migrant population.
By the end of this session, participants should be able to:
- Understand the most commonly occurring Intestinal Nematodes.
- Discuss the diagnostic workup for Intestinal Nematodes.
- Discuss complications associated with Intestinal Nematodes.
