Abstract

We investigated 245 diarrheal stool specimens from HIV-positive subjects between January 2003 and December 2006 to determine the etiological role of coproparasites. Parasitic etiology was observed in 91 (37.1%) cases. (26.1%) was the most common parasite followed by (3.3%), spp. (2.9%), (1.6%), and (1.2%). Interesting trends of significant increase in the number of cases of and decline in spp. were observed during the study period.
