Human enterobiasis in evolution: origin, specificity and transmission






Parasite 6(3): 201-208

Human enterobiasis in evolution: origin, specificity and transmission

The origins of human pinworms were investigated by a study of records of Enterobius vermicularis from 830 coprolites from arid areas of North America dating from 8000 BC to 1250-1300 AD. The lowest prevalence was observed at hunter-gatherer cave sites (2%) and in agricultural peoples living without stone-walled villages (0%). Stone-walled agricultural villages not associated with caves had a prevalence of 10%.
