Abstract

A group of youngsters (4-18 years old) in northeast Brazil was studied to establish the prevalence of anaemia and intestinal parasitism, aswell as to analyze the correlation between them. Two criteria were used to determine the state of anaemia, the level of haemoglobin and themean of corpuscular volume. The first was considered a single criterion and the second art associated criteria, used in an attempt to correlate anaemia with iron deficiency. The prevalence of intestinal parasitism was 93%, while the prevalence of anaemia was 43.1% and 16.1% according to the criteria employed (single or associated respectively). Anaemia was significantly associated with both sex and age. No significant statistical difference was observed when the association was mane between each parasite and anaemia evert with those more related to anaemia.
