Answer

Obtain a computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen and pelvis to reveal any nonspecific thickening of the bowel wall.

Pulmonary CT scans may reveal fine miliary nodules or diffuse reticular interstitial opacities. Pulmonary infiltrates in disseminated strongyloidiasis. These infiltrates consist of foci of hemorrhage, pneumonitis, and edema.
