Conclusions and Summary

The incidence of parasitism in Scotts Bluff County, Nebraska approximates the estimated national average. Intestinal protozoa appear to be generally transmitted by some method other than in feces. Importation of the heavily infected Mexican laborers into the county could supply the infective material for an epidemic or a build-up of amebiasis, although at present no important transfer to permanent residents seems to have occurred.
