A case of human immunodeficiency virus-positive patient having tuberculosis and oral thrush with diarrhea was investigated for gastrointestinal pathogens. The stool specimen of the patient, whose CD 4 count was 162/cuÁl, revealed as many as four microbes including fertilized eggs of Ascaris lumbricoides , larvae of Strongyloides stercoralis , cysts of Cryptosporidium parvum and Salmonella typhimurium . A comprehensive stool examination for different pathogens in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome patients with diarrhea is recommended.
