Abstract

ARTIGAS, Paulo de Toledo; PEREZ, Mário Demar  and  BAGGIO, Domingos. Coprologic census of Peruibe (Southern town in the coast of the State of São Paulo): record of autochthonous cases of manson's schistosomiasis. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1969, vol.3, n.2, pp. 141-147. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101969000200003.

The results of feces examinations, in order to know the degree and variation of intestinal parasitoses among the inhabitants of Peruibe, a littorean city in the south of the State of Sao Paulo, Brazil, are presented. Among 475 persons, children and adults, living in 20% of the houses of the town, 95.3% proved to be parasited. The percentual results of helminths and protozoa infestations are related in tables. Seven autochthonous cases of manson's schistomiasis have been discovered, i.e., a percentage of 5.89%.
