Abstract:

Intestinal parasitic infections are worldwide endemic and are a major public health problem of concern. The incidence is high in developing countries like India probably due to contaminated food and lack of knowledge. The stool samples from healthy individuals in slum communities of Ghaziabad were collected and examined Macroscopic for the presence adult worms or their body segments and microscopic examination both saline and iodine mounts after Formol-ether concentration technique for presence of cyst and eggs. The total numbers of 100 samples were examined for parasitic finding among them 40 were found to be positive for parasitic findings. In which 26(60%) were males and 14(35%) females, age group 21-30 years were the most common. The finding of the pathogenic case were 28(70%) and non-pathogenic 12(30%) findings among pathogenic findings the most common were Entamoeba histolytica 10(25%) followed by Hymenolepis nana 8(20%), Taenia species 7(17.5%). Dual positive were also found in 4 persons of Entamoeba histolytica + Hymenolepis nana and Taenia solium + Entamoeba histolytica. The incidence of infestation was 40% and it is high suggesting for proper hygienic and avoids contaminated food consumption.
