Description:This micrograph depicts a hookworm rhabditiform larva, which represents its early, noninfectious immature stage.
The human hookworms include two nematode, i.e., roundworm, species, Ancylostoma duodenale and Necator americanus. Larvae can become infective, i.e., filariform stage, within feces and/or soil, and can then be passed to humans on contact.
