Changing patterns in the prevalence of intestinal parasites at the University Hospital of the West Indies (1964-1981)

, : Changing patterns in the prevalence of intestinal parasites at the University Hospital of the West Indies (1964-1981). West Indian Medical Journal 31(3): 111-120

Based on faecal examination of patients with enteric problems, and children up to 12 years old, at the University Hospital of the West Indies, Jamaica, from 1964 to 1981, it was seen that the prevalence of hookworm fell steadily from 8.7% in 1964 to a minimum of 1.0% in 1978. Ascaris lumbricoides peaked at 9.0% in 1973 and fell to 4.7% in 1980 and 1981. Infection with Trichuris trichiura increased from 9.6% in 1964 to a maximum of 24.1% in 1973, but fell to 11.1% in 1979.
