Strongyloides infection in brain???
Never heard of that. Will try to check it out.
I hear something about a 'web site of nasty diseases' What is the url?

the only Strongyloides I know are animal related, especially cattle.
wait, yes, Strongyloides stercoralis, also in humans but that's all in the
small intestines. nothing as far as I know is the brain.

Sincerely, Jack
