Abstract


Intestinal parasites are responsible for causing a series of complications in individuals parasitized by them. These complications can be from the simplest, but can also lead to death if the patient has a high parasite load in his or her body and it is not diagnosed in time for an effective and rapid treatment. These parasites are transmitted to humans mainly through incorrect hygiene measures and poor basic sanitation. The present study had as objective to observe the occurrences of enteroparasitosis in the samples of the patients attended in the municipal laboratory of the Hospital Sancho Leite in the city of Teixeira-PB, aiming to observe the relation to the degree of parasitism of the samples presented positively in a parasitological examination and with that make the correct treatment. From the records from February 2016 to December 2017 of patients attended at the Hospital, a total of 575 patient records were evaluated. In the year 2016, 180 positive cases were registered for protozoa and 130 negative, these results totaled 310 people attended in the municipal laboratory.
