British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology 95(6): 493-496



Asian women attending an antenatal clinic in England were studied to determine the infestation rates with intestinal rates with intestinal helminths. An overall rate of 9% was found, rising to 18% in those women resident for less than 7 years. Indians had a carriage rate of 3%, Pakistanis 7.3% and Bangladeshis 45%. Species detected were hookworm, whipworm (Trichuris trichiura), dwarf tapeworm (Hymenolepis nana) and roundworm (Ascaris lumbricoides).
