ABSTRACT
A 20-year-old healthy farmer consumed organophosphorous poison. On third day he developed diarrhoea and on fourth day linear serpiginous ulcers appeared on both buttocks. Clinically lesions were considered as decubitus ulcers. By stool examination and other laboratory investigations it was diagnosed as cutaneous larva currens due to Strongyloides stercoralis in a case of organophosphorus poisoning. Patient responded very well to a course of albendazole.
