Epidemiological study among companies of the armed forces of southeastern madagascar malagasy republic part 2 the intestinal parasites therapeutic and prophylactic notes
A parasitological analysis of stools by a concentration technique [Mercurothiol-I-formol (MIF)] among 261 servicemen from SE Madagascar, showed a frequency of intestinal parasitic diseases of 97%. The rates of major parasitic diseases were 78% for ascaridiasis, 63% for ankylostomiasis and 13% for intestinal bilharziasis. Polyparasitism had a very high frequency; 82% of individuals had at least 2 parasites, and 62% had 3 or more parasites. The frequency of bilharziasis was 5 fold higher than those of previous surveys not using a concentration technique. The rate of carriers of Entamoeba histolytica minuta cysts was very low, 3%, the same as obtained by previous survey. Some eggs of Trichostrongylus sp. (6 cases), Capillaria sp. (1 case) and Fasciola gigantica (1 case) were discovered.
