Resumen

DIAZ, Valentina et al. Nutritional-hematological status and intestinal parasitosis of school children aged 5 to 12 years in four rural localities of Paraguay. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2018, vol.16, n.1, pp.26-32. ISSN 1812-9528.  https://doi.org/10.18004/mem.iics/1812-9528/2018.016(01)26-032.

The world is currently facing a double burden of malnutrition that includes malnutrition and over-feeding. In addition, intestinal parasitoses are a frequent disease with significant morbidity and mortality in children, related to poverty and poor hygienic-sanitary conditions. The objective of this study was to evaluate the nutritional-hematological and parasitological state of school children from four rural communities of Paraguay. Cross-sectional observational descriptive study that included 102 children of both sexes, 5 to 12 years of age. Measurement of weight, height, blood sample and stool collection were performed. Regarding the nutritional-hematological state, 3.9% of the children were moderately undernourished, 9.8% were at risk of malnutrition and 38.2% of the children had anemia. In relation to parasitosis, the diagnostic study was performed in 94 children and it was found that 72.2% was parasitized, and Blastocystis hominis was the most frequent. A high frequency of anemia and parasitosis was found in this population; however no relationship was established between them.

Palabras clave : anemia; malnutrition; parasitosis; school children.
