Beschreibung:

Intestinal parasites are wide spread and they cause significant morbidity and mortality in children throughout the world, particularly in the tropics and subtropics. Children with HIV/AIDS are more prone to infections including intestinal parasites because of their depressed immunity. A lot of studies have been carried out in adults compared to children. Therefore, this work provides an insight to the prevalence and patterns of intestinal parasitic infestations in HIV positive and HIV negative children. The relationship between Intestinal Parasitic Infestations and HIV immunological stages was established in this study. This work will therefore help clinicians as well care givers to manage these children.
