Abstract: We have reported two cases of Ancylostoma duodenale which were found in Saga City. Case 1: A 82-year-old woman who had anemia, edema and back pain was admitted to Saga National Hospital because of palpitation. The radiological and endoscopic studies revealed no existence of abnormality. But the eggs of hookworm were detected in the stool, and subsequently the larvae of Ancylostoma duodenale were also detected by the faecal culture. She received the therapy with pyrantel pamoate and the eggs in the stool disappeared completely. Case 2: A 80-year-old man who had complained exertional fatigability and breathlessness was admitted to Saga National Hospital because of cough. He had histories of malaria and acute bronchitis. The radiograph revealed the infiltration of the lower lobe in the right lung. We found the eggs of hookworm in the stool, and detected the larvae of Ancylostoma duodenale by the culture incubation of the stool. He also received the therapy with pyrantel pamoate and the eggs of the parasite in the stool disappeared. These cases suggest that typical cases of ancylostomiasis may be existent with or without other disease in the middle of a city, and we have to search for the parasite more discreetly.
