The relationship between hookworm infection and anaemia was studied in 162 schoolchildren of both sexes from 7 to 10 year old in a rural area of north-east Thailand. 134 of the children had hookworm eggs in their faeces in numbers ranging from 100 to 12,000 e.p.g. A significant negative correlation was observed between faecal egg count and haemoglobin concentration.
