Abstract

Objective - To study the prevalence of Enterobius vermicularis and its association with finger sucking in young Swedish children. Design - Cross-sectional survey with a questionnaire for symptoms of infestation with Enterobius vermicularis, and the children's habit of finger sucking (including fingernail biting). Perianal tape-test for identification of eggs of Enterobius vermicularis. Setting - Primary care, day-care centres, and schools in a Swedish middle-sized town (approx. 80 000inhabitants). Participants - 172 children of both sexes, 4-10 years old. Main outcome measures - The prevalence of Enterobius vermicularis and its association with finger sucking. Results - 21% of the childrenwere symptom-free carriers of Enterobius vermicularis, and finger sucking was strongly associated with a positive tape-test (p=0.01). Conclusion - More children than previously known seemed to be symptom-free carriers of Enterobius vermicularis. Finger sucking should be considered when treating infested children and especially those with relapsingsymptoms.
