Abstract

Formol-ether concentration supplemented by fresh saline smears was used to study intestinal parasites in two communities, Miu and Kitengei,in Machakos District, Kenya. These communities differed markedly in schistosome associated morbidity, in spite of similar prevalence and intensities of infection as revealed by Kato examination. Seven helminthand nine protozoan species were detected among 1011 samples examined. More than 60% of the subjects were infected with more than one parasite: one had nine. Age-prevalence curves were typical for the differentspecies, and overall prevalence of some protozoa, including Entamoebaspp. and Blastocystis hominis, exceeded that of the commonest helminth, Schistosoma mansoni. However, the observed prevalence of S. mansoniwas barely 40% of that detected by Kato examinations. Strong associations were found between some pairs of protozoan species, but not with or among the helminths. The differences in the abundance and age-specific distribution of the other intestinal parasites at Miu and Kitengeiwere so small that it is unlikely that interactions between them and S. mansoni would account for the differences in schistosomal morbidity.
