Abstract.

To determine whether the presence of is associated with other gastrointestinal parasite infections, stool samples from 95 Honduran rural children were analyzed using multi-parallel quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and Kato–Katz. Combined results detected the following prevalence: , 71.6%; , 63.2%; , 40.0%; , 15.8%; and , 4.2%. Age was found associated with the quantity of both DNA ( = 0.524, < 0.001) and DNA in the stool (fg/µL) by quantitative PCR ( = 0.272, < 0.001). In addition, there was an association with and infection (odds ratio [OR] = 4.72; 95% CI = 1.83, 12.20; < 0.001). These findings demonstrate a high prevalence of and other intestinal parasites in a rural location in Honduras.
