      Abstract

      Hemos realizado un survey del parasitismo intestinal en la población total de Satipo; centro de colonización situado en la región selvática de la Provincia de Jauja, llegando a las siguientes conclusiones El estado higiénico en que viven los pobladores de Satipo, y la influencia que ejerce el clima, crean condiciones muy favorables para el desarrollo y propagación de los parásitos intestinales. La incidencia del parasitismo en la población total es de 95.74% con una incidencia corregida a la población standard (1) de 95.43%. No existen diferencias notables con relación al sexo. El 98.60% de los hombres y el 92.17% de las mujeres están parasitados. Con respecto a la edad la mayor incidencia: 100.00% corresponde a los individuos comprendidos entre los 5-14 años. La menor 82.93%, entre los 0-4 años. El análisis estadístico de la frecuencia de infestación arroja un promedio o media de 3.16±0.09 parásitos diferentes por persona. Los límites de infestación en la población total oscilan entre 1 y 9 parásitos diferentes por persona. La incidencia de infestación con protozoos intestinales en la población total es de 64,73%, con una incidencia corregida a la población standard de 65.05%. La incidencia de la infestación con helmintos en la población total es de 90.31%, con una incidencia corregida a la población standard de 90.61%; correspondiendo el mayor número de infestaciones con helmintos a Trichocephalus dispar: 66.28%.

      A general survey of intestinal parasitism in the whole population of Satipo has been made. This is a jungle colonization center located in the Province of Jauja. The grand total population of this jungle town has been sampled. The following general conclusions follow from this survey: The sanitary conditions of the inhabitants of Satipo as weIl as climatological factors create favorable conditions for the development and spread of intestinal parasites. The incidence of intestinal parasitism in the grand total population of 258 inhabitants corresponds to 95.74%, with a corrected incidence refered to a standard population, of 95.43%.(2) No striking differences have been observed in relation to sex. 98.60% of males and 92.17% of females carry parasites in their stools. As far as age incidence is concerned, 100.00% parasitism has been found in the age group ranging from 5 to 14 years old. The smaller incidence, 82.93%, corresponds to the age group between 0 and 4 years old. The statistical analysis of the frequency distribution of parasitism shows a Mean of 3.16 ± 0.09 different parasites per inhabitant. The lower and upper limits correspond to 1 and 9 different parasites per inhabitant, respectively. The incidence of infestation with intestinal protozoa in the grand total population was found to be 64.73% with a corrected incidence refered to a standard population, of 65.05%. The incidence of Helminths infestation in the grand total population was 90.31%, with a corrected incidence refered to a standard population, of 90.61%, being the gratest parasitism due to Trichocephalus dispar: 66.28%.
