Abstract

A point prevalence survey for intestinal parasites was conducted in 890 subjects 7 months to 75 years of age in a rural community of Zulia State, Venezuela. Single stool specimens were collected and examined using iron-hematoxylin stained fecal smears and formalin-ether concentration. The overall parasitic infection I ate was 64.5% and 50.7% of the population had multiple infections. Pathogens were observed in 52.3%of the subjects. Ascaris lumbricoides (23.9%) and Trichuris trichiura(15.2%) were the most common helminths and, among the protozoa, Giardia lamblia was the most prevalent (21.8%). These parasites predominated in children. Entamoeba histolytica infections were identified in 9.4% of the subjects, with a high percentage of asymptomatic cyst carriers (85.7%). Entamoeba polecki was observed in one case. The overall amebic prevalence rate was (32.6%). The high rates of parasitic and multiple infections reflect the low living conditions of the study population and the public health importance of these agents in the area.
