The diagnosis of enterobiasis; comparative study of the Graham and Hall techniques in the diagnoses of enterobiasis



The diagnosis of enterobiasis; comparative study of the Graham and Hall techniques in the diagnoses of enterobiasis



Journal of Laboratory and Clinical Medicine 30: 12, 1046-1048



Seventeen children heavily infected with Enterobius vermcularis were examined on five successive days by the NIH swab and Scotch cellulose tape loop methods. The former technique gave 91.7% and the latter 96.5% positives. In a second series of 240 children not previously examined the NIH technique gave 30% and the cellulose tape technique 45% positive findings. A third series comprising 430 individuals, mostly adults, gave 16% by the NIH and 32% by the cellulose tape method. These higher results occurred in all age groups and irrespective of sex.
