This study was aimed to investigate the prevalence of two zoonotic intestinal parasites Strongyloides stercoralis and Hymenolepis nana in house rat from slum area in Surabaya District, East Java, Indonesia that have the potential to cause opportunistic infection in humans. One hundred house rat faecal samples were collected from a slum area in Surabaya District with a dense rat population during February 2019. Microscopic examination was carried out to detect and identify S.stercoralis larvae, and H.nana eggs. The result of the microscopic examination identified the presence of S.stercoralis larvae in 60 house rat faecal samples (60%), and H.nana eggs in 12 house rat faecal samples (12%).
