Détection des parasites intestinaux dans les échantillons de selle par microscopie et PCR en temps réel chez les enfants à Dakar Sénégal

Intestinal parasitic infections (IPIs) are considered a serious public health problem and widely distributed worldwide, mainly in urban and rural environments of tropical and subtropical countries. Globally, soil-transmitted helminths and protozoa are the most common intestinal parasites. Decreasing the prevalence of IPIs is one of the main aims of health services in these countries. This study was designed to determine the current status of IPIs in children with vulnerable living conditions by microscopy and PCR. Methodology/main findings A cross-sectional population-based survey was conducted. One stool sample per participant (n = 253) was examined by direct smear, formal-ether concentration (FEC), and real-time PCR. It was found that 17.39% harboured at least one helminth while 12.64% harboured two helminths or more. Among the microscopic techniques, FEC was able to detect the broadest spectrum of parasite species. However, FEC also missed a considerable number of infections, nota
