Intestinal helminthiasis in school background in six towns of southwestern Côte d'Ivoire


, : Intestinal helminthiasis in school background in six towns of southwestern Côte d'Ivoire. Bulletin de la Societe de Pathologie Exotique 100(3): 176-177

A coproparasitological investigation was conducted in six towns located in the humid dense forest area of South West Côte d'Ivoire in order to determine the prevalence of intestinal helminthosis. During this study faeces of 2220 school children aged from 4 to 15 years old were analysed by four coprological techniques: direct analysis, Kato, Baermann and Graham methods. The overall prevalence rate of intestinal helminthosis in school children in the area is 37.9%. Male subjects are more infested than females. The more frequent parasite species were: hookworm (17%), Ascaris lumbricoides (10.8%), Trichuris trichiura (8.9%) and Enterobius vermicularis (7.2%).
