Abstract

Summary

An examination of 349 fecal specimens fixed by the MIF (Merthiolate-iodine-formalin) preservation method revealed the presence of ten species of protozoa, seven of nematodes, four of cestodes, eight species of trematodes and a tyroglyphoid mite. There was a predominance of the small race of over the large race and only a single infection with was noted.

Although there was an unusually high incidence of eggs of the conditions of these eggs in stool specimens indicate spurious infections. and in Turkish soldiers from the Korean campaign implicate travel as the probable reason for infection; infections probably were contracted as a result of pilgrimages to Mecca.
