ABSTRACT

This research has been based on microscopic examination of stool specimens taken from 675 persons older than 15 years of age. The examinations were conducted in Parasitology Laboratory of the Dumlupinar University Hospital. Laboratory examinations of stools were done with native and formalin-ethyl acetate sedimentation methods. Different intestinal parasites were found in 52 (7.7%) of the stool specimens. At least one parasite species was found in 3.11% of women and 4.59% of men. The prevalence of helminths and protozoa were as follows; Giardia intestinalis 1.48%, Entamoeba histolytica/dispar 0.74%, Isospora belli 0.30%, Iodamoeba butschlii 1.33%, Blastocystis hominis 1.04%, Endolimax nana 0.44%, Entamoeba coli 1.04%, Taenia saginata 0.44%, Trichostrongylus spp. 0.15%, Entamoeba coli + Blastocystis hominis 0.15%, Giardia intestinalis + Entamoeba coli 0.15%, Giardia intestinalis + Blastocystis hominis 0.44%. The dispersion of 52 parasite species in examined stools were as follows; Giardia intestinalis 19.23%, Entamoeba histolytica/ dispar 9.62%, Isospora belli 3.85%, Iodamoeba bütschlii 17.31%, Blastocystis hominis 13.46%, Endolimax nana 5.77%, Entamoeba coli 13.46%, Taenia saginata 5.77%, Trichostrongylus spp. 1.92%, Entamoeba coli + Blastocystis hominis 1.92%, Entamoeba coli + Giardia intestinalis 1.92%, Giardia intestinalis + Blastocystis hominis 5.77%.
