Parasitic diseases have worldwide distribution and, despite the efforts of health organizations, remain a problem specially in developing countries like ours. The objective of this work, evaluated by the National Commission for Development of ethics in Paraguay, was to determine the frequency rate of enteroparasites in children of the first cycle of the basic education of public schools in Ciudad Del Este (Paraguay). In the period between September and December 2006, 48 public schools were visited and fecal samples of 388 children, who were between 7 and 9 years old and randomly selected, were collected. The collected samples were examined by four methods for entereoparasite search: Direct examination of fresh feces, Faust, Ritchie and Lutz. The percentage of positive samples was 94.23% and seven species of protozoans and five species of helminths were identified. The frequency of the enteroparasites in the population studied was as follows: Giardia duodenalis 67%, Entamoeba coli 52%, Blastocystis hominis 45%, Endolimax nana 31%, Chilomastix mesnili 8%, Iodamoeba butschilii 3%, Entamoeba histolytica 2%, Hymenolepis nana 12%, Enterobius vermicularis 1%, Strongyloides stercoralis 2%, Ascaris lumbricoides 1% and Uncinarias 2%.
