Epidemiological studies on oxyuriasis (enterobiasis) in the Children's Home in Gdansk

Epidemiological studies on oxyuriasis (enterobiasis) in the Children's Home in Gdansk

Bulletin of the State Institute of Marine and Tropical Medicine in Gdansk, Poland, 3: 1/2, 73-84

Kozar investigated the occurrence of Enterobius vermicularis over a period of eight months in the inhabitants of a Children's Home in Gdansk, where the incidence reached 90%. He considers that six negative NIH swabs are necessary before a negative result can be confirmed. Of the 16 children who were apparently uninfected, 10 were aged 3-7 years. From a study of the modes of infection in this institution, Kozar concludes that the greatest number of infections were acquired by dust-borne ova entering the respiratory tract; retrofection was apparently rare. When the faeces of the children were Part 5 HELMINTHOLOGICAL ABSTRACTS FOR 1950 No. 552 examined by the flotation method with a saturated salt solution the helminth incidence found was Enterobius vermicularis 13.3%, Ascaris lumbricoides 28.4 % and Trichuris trichiura 25.3%.
