Protozoal cysts or trophozoites were found in (64.51%) while helminthic eggs were found in 22(35.38%) of positive samples. In protozoal infection, Entaetaemoeba histolytica was found 55% followed by Giardia lamblia.63.63 % samples were positive for Anchylostoma duodenale Presence of parasitic infection was predominantly seen in adults.
Conclusion: Entaetaemoeba histolytica is a predominant protozoal infestation and the Anchylostoma duodenale amongst the helminthes.
