STOOL ANALYSIS FOR PARASITIC WORMS (ENTERIC WORM) AMONG THE PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPILS IN UDI ROAD PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPILS IN ENUGU METROPOLIS

ABSTRACT

 

Stools from primary School pupils in Asata Enugu were analysed for parasitic worms.  The analyses were conducted at the Microbiology Laboratory Department of National Orthopaedic Hospital, Enugu.  A total of hundred (100) samples collected randomly form Udi road primary School in the process of the examination brine floatation method was used, normal saline and stool samples were examined for the parasitic worms.

Out of the hundred (100) pupils examined 46 cases showed positive while 54 cases showed negative and is showed hookworm while 31 showed Ascaris Ova, Cysts in their faeces.

INTRODUCTION

1.0     DEFINITION OF ENTERIC WORM

Enteric worm are define as organisms that live in the intestine of humans or animals and invest their food from the intestine to grow.  The most common of the parasitic-worms that infect the human intestine are viz.:

Reound Worms    (-Asearis spp)

Hook Worms       (Ancycostoma duodenate and Necator spp).

Whip worms        (Irichuris trichiura)

Pin Worms           (Enterobius Vermicularis)

 

The presence of these various types of worms in large numbers coupled with the poor living habits of large segments of the world population has made the control of these worms difficulty and their eradication nearly impossible.  That human life and the worms have been in separately interrelated is quite a challenge to mouth transmission dynamics and also that man cannot control the entry into his mouth of materials that pass through his anus is a puzzle.  Here, helminthiasis (literally means infections and parasites caused by worms) is the worst culprite.

 

1.1     SOURCES OF INFECTION

The primary source of worm infestation is the food or water contaminated with infected faeces.  When these parasites are passed out through the anus, some of them find their way to food used by man and get it contaminated.  Examples are Ascaris eggs on vegetables such as Solanium, lettuce, Cabbage and other vegetables eaten raw or poorly washed.  So when
