The hugely pathogenic Strongyloides species may additionally be categorised as geohelminths, yet they aren't handled right here as the figuring out in their epidemiology, immunology and genetics has no longer complex as quickly as for the others. this is often essentially due to the usually covert nature of the infections, with consequent problems for research.
