Strongyloides stercoralis is one of the most common human pathogenic parasitic nematodes that is able to complete a life cycle and proliferate within its host. The majority of patients with strongyloidiasis have an asymptomatic infection or mild disease. Nowadays, with increasing the incidence of autoimmune diseases and as well as corticosteroids therapy and increase in diseases such as Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), cancer has been a source of concern for secondary disorders. These individuals are more likely to develop microbial diseases including bacteria, parasites, fungi, and viral infections, and if they are affected may be endanger the patient's life. Amongst the parasitic infections of Strongyloides stercoralis is very important in the life cycle of the parasite due to the specificity of the infection (Hyperinfection). Our case represents chronic strongyloidiasis with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
