The agar plate method is a new and highly sensitive technique for diagnosis strongyloidiasis. We detected strongyloidiasis from 331 villagers in Khon Kaen province by using this technique. There were 82 cases (24.77%) positive for Strongyloides stercoralis. They were administered albendazole 400 mg orally once a day for 3 consecutive days. Only 51 cases submitted stools for re - examination two weeks after treatment. There were 38 cases cured (74.51%) This study showed that strongyloidiasis is still a high cause of infection in Khon Kaen and the dosage of 400 mg orally once a day for 3 consecutive days of albendazole showed effective treatment.
