Ankylostomiasis Claims

Ankylostomiasis is a scientific name which refers to a type of hookworm which can enter the human body by piercing through the skin.  The infection can occur when the larvae enter the body through breaks in the skin and make its way into the bloodstream and into the small intestine.

Most people contract Ankylostomiasis whilst walking barefoot on contaminated soil. So if you have contracted the infection at work due to your employer’s negligence, you could be entitled to make Ankylostomiasis claims for compensation.

When the hookworm enters the small intestine, they suck on blood from the intestinal walls which can cause iron deficiency.  Some of the common symptoms of Ankylostomiasis include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Anaemia
  • Diarrhoea
  • Bleeding of the intestinal walls
  • Malnutrition

Fevers, coughing, itching are other common symptoms of Ankylostomiasis.
