Résumé / Abstract

Three hundred and thirty-two stool samples were examined for the presence of intestinal parasites including Strongyloides stercoralis. Each sample was processed and examined by direct smear, formalin-ether and Harada and Mori culture methods. Nine parasites were recovered from patients attending Basrah Teaching Hospital, southern Iraq during 1989. The prevalence rate of infection was 64.2%. It was higher in rural (74.2%) than in urban (57.5%) region (p < 0.01). Sex distribution was 120 (36.1%) males and 87 (26.2%) females (p > 0,05). The most common parasites were Blastocystis hominis, Giardia lamblia, Entamoebo histolytica, Hymenolepis nana and Strongyloides stercoralis. Formalin-ether concentration method was 3.75 times better than the direct smear method in the diagnosis of helminth rather than protozoan infections
