ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to determine the parasite frequency in 3925 patients during 2005 from January 1– December 31 in the parasitology laboratory of the Ege University Medicine School. During the laboratory investigation, 3925 fecal specimens and cellophane tapes from the patients were examined. After the microscope examination of 3925 feces samples, it was found that 590 (15.03%) of these samples contained one or more intestinal parasites. Blastocystis hominis (4.96%), Cyclospora spp. (1.91%), Enterobius vermicularis (1.86%), Entamoeba coli (1.78%) and Giardia intestinalis (1.78%) were the five most common parasites obtained during the examination.
