About 27% of inhabitants of the town of Mogilev, USSR, were tested for the presence of intestinal protozoa. Of the 7000 persons chosen randomly (every 4th person with family name beginning with C or K), 32% had intestinal protozoa; the prevalences in children and adults were 26 and 36% respectively. The most common protozoan was Entamoeba coli. E. histolytica and Giardia lamblia were recorded in 2.4 and 37.3% of children and in 3.8 and 21.7% of adults.
