Incidence of Endamoeba histolytica and intestinal nematodes in a Georgia state institution

, : Incidence of Endamoeba histolytica and intestinal nematodes in a Georgia state institution. Jour Parasitol 27(1): 89-90

[longdash]One ward of 72 white adult [female][female] was examined in June for intestinal parasites, and again in Nov., when the ward contained 70 patients. An additional ward of 88 white $$ was examined in Oct. for pinworm infection only. The results of the examinations showed the following positive percentages: For June, Endamoeba histolytica 40, Ascaris lumbricoides 14, Necator americanus 33, Trichuris trichiura 65, Strongy-loides stercoralis 6, Enterobius vermicularis 53; for November, E. histolytica 44, A. lumbricoides 9, N. americanus 30, T. trichiura 61, S. stercoralis 6, E. vermicularis 69; for October, E. vermicularis 27. The complete absence of diar-rheic conditions suggested that the E. histolytica was one of low virulence, or that a resistance to it had been acquired from long-continued exposure. Stoll egg counts indicated that the Ascaris, Necator and Trichuris burdens were light. No analysis was made of the findings for Strongyloides or for Enterobius.
