Abstract

Hookworm infections are not an uncommon cause of anemia and can affect any age group. Usually a diagnosis is made by identifying eggs in the stool samples. In this case of 61 years old male, who was suffering from anemia for last one year without any identifiable cause we were able to identify hookworm infestations in the duodenum by performing an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. Patient recovered completely by giving a single stat dose of albendazole. Gastrointestinal endoscopy can be useful in diagnosing easily treatable hookworm infection if other modalities are inconclusive.
