The post-treatment effects of enterobiasis on the occurrence of enuresis among children in Calabar, Nigeria

, : The post-treatment effects of enterobiasis on the occurrence of enuresis among children in Calabar, Nigeria. Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Medicine 4(4): 315-319

Investigate the relationship between enterobiasis and enuresis before and after albendazole therapy among 632 children, aged, 5 14 years, in Calabar, Nigeria. The scotch tape (cellotape) technique was used for the detection of eggs of Enterobius vermicularis (E. vermicularis) while questionnaire-based interviews were used for screening for anal itching and/or enuresis among study participants. All subjects found positive for Enterobius infection as confirmed by the presence of eggs and those with persistent anal itching (both enuretic and non-enuretic) were treated with 4 mg of albendazole given as a single dose. The treated subjects were re-assessed post-treatment to ascertain whether they were.
