Abstract

Summary

In an analysis of hookworm counts made on the Ilha dos Marinheiros, State of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, a rather definite correlation is found between the intensity of infection and the amount of shoe-wearing among the different age groups of both sexes.

It is indicated that infections are contracted in this particular area, not so much by prolonged contact with the humid earth of the fields as by relatively shorter exposure to highly infected spots of pollution.

Sumario

De un analisis de conteos de uncinarias que se hizo en la Isla de Marineros, Estado de Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil, se demuestra la existencia de una correlación definida entre la intensidad de la infección y el uso de calzado entre los diferentes grupos de edades de ambos sexos.

Parece indicarse que las infecciones en esta región particular no se contraen por medio del contacto prolongado con el terreno humedo de los campos tanto como a una expocición relativamente corta en puntos de contaminación altamente infectado.
