Scholz recommends the Schiiffner-S.wellengrebel technique (massage of the peri-anal region with the rounded and ground end of a glass rod) as the most reliable method for diagnosing Enterobius infection. He considers that under favourable hygienic conditions a large number of infections will disappear spontaneously: treatment is only needed for heavy infections showing severe symptoms. Correct and adequate protein diet is important.
