One of our local hospitals had Strongyloides worms in a sputum specimen.  They
wriggled all over the plate leaving bacterial trails on the media as they
went.  Obviously they travel.  I don't know much else about the epidemiology of
this worm.  I probably should look it up.  The ASM Manual is a good place to
start (American Society of Microbiology).
