Abstract: Parasitological examinations were carried out during July to December, 1989, on 485 inhabitants of four villages in São Lourenço da Mata, 25 km northwest of Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil. Approximately 99.6% of the inhabitants were infected with at least one species of intestinal parasites. A high prevalence of Schistosoma mansoni (82.1%), hookworm (80.2%) Trichuris trichiura (69.9%), Ascaris lumbricoides (61.9%) and Entamoeba coli (36.7%) infections were demonstrated. Test tube cultivation revealed that the most… Show more

“…In comparable settings, Hillyer et al found a prevalence of eosinophilia of 52% and Cardoso et al a prevalence of anemia in 28%. In other studies in similar settings, prevalence of intestinal parasites ranged form 26% to 99% [15,20,21]. For ectoparasitic infection, prevalences between 16% and 43% have been described [16,21].…”

“…However, community-derived data on the prevalence of eosinophilia, leukocytosis and anemia and their association with intestinal and skin parasitism are scanty [14][15][16]. To investigate to which extent ectoparasites contribute to eosinophilia in the context of intestinal helminthiases, we conducted a community-based study in a rural community in Alagoas State, Northeast Brazil.…”

“…According to parasitological examinations in Sao Lourenco da Mata, northeast Brazil (Goncalves et aL, 1990) , four out of 485 inhabitants were positive for unembryonated eggs of Toxocara canis in stools. Therefore, a sero -epidemiological study was conducted to obtain preliminary data on the prevalence of human toxocariasis in Sao Lourenco da Mata.…”

“…Considering that a S. mansoni female adult worm lays a large number of eggs per day, and that only a small part of them passes through the feces while the majority remains in the tissue. Handerson et al 19 , for example, infecting inbred CB/J mice, found a range of 25,511-40,143 egg/liver depending on whether the animal developed moderate splenomegaly syndrome or hypersplenomegaly syndrome. In addition, in our study, macroscopic and physiologic changes due to the presence of S. mansoni eggs on the specified organs were not observed.…”
