Toxocara seroprevalence in children from a subtropical city in Argentina



Toxocara seroprevalence in children from a subtropical city in Argentina



Revista do Instituto de Medicina Tropical de Sao Paulo 42(4): 235-237



In order to assess the prevalence of anti-Toxocara antibodies in an infantile population, 206 children from Resistencia, Argentina, of both sexes, aged 1-14 years old were studied by ELISA testing with E/S T. canis L2 antigens. Haematological parameters and immunoglobulin levels were determined; 5 days' stool samples were studied and epidemiological data were obtained by means of a questionnaire to parents.
