The incidence of oxyuriasis among schoolchildren in urban and rural areas in Northern Taiwan.



The incidence of oxyuriasis among schoolchildren in urban and rural areas in Northern Taiwan.



Journal of the Formosan Medical Association, 59: 8, 757-767



In northern Formosa in 1959, one examination by the Scotch tape method detected Enterobius vermicularis in 64.8% of 4, 788 boys aged 6 to 12 years in Taipei city, and in 58.5% of 1, 949 rural schoolchildren. When 1, 545 city pupils were examined 3 times, the rate rose from 73.9% at the first to 88% at the third examination, suggesting that one swab was insufficient to detect the lower intensity infections. Similarly in 1, 083 rural children examined 3 times, the rate rose from 75.2% to 90.3%.
