Studies on oxyuriasis. XIX. Examinations of children in a private nursery school over an 18-month period

Studies on oxyuriasis. XIX. Examinations of children in a private nursery school over an 18-month period

Publ Health Repts 54(14): 567-574

In a modern, well-equipped private nursery school for white children, examinations for pinworms (Enterobius vermicularis) were made by the use of the NIH anal swab. Of 106 children in the school during 1937, some continuing into 1938, 58 (55%) were positive; of 974 swabs used, 124 (13%) were positive. 39 (59%) of 66 boys were positive; and 19 (48%) of 40 girls. Most of the children were 2-5 yrs. old, a few older; those 2-3 yrs. old showed an incidence of 43%, those 4 to 5 yrs. old an incidence of 64%, without marked difference in incidence in the 2 sexes. Of an additional 25 children, entering the school in 1938, 2 (8%) were positive. Of 34 other persons examined, either relatives of pupils or persons associated with the school, 8 were positive for pinworms.
