Malabsorption syndrome refers to a number of disorders in which the intestine’s ability to absorb certain nutrients, such as vitamin B12 and folic acid and iron, into the bloodstream is negatively affected. Chronic diarrhea is a feature of malabsorption syndrome. Chronic diarrhea due to Strongyloidiasis is a well known entity especially in immunocompromised individuals. We report a case of intestinal Strongyloidiasis in a case of bronchial asthma.

Key words: Malabsorption, Strongyloides stercoralis, chronic diarrhea.
