Abstract

The results of two enteroparasitological surveys in children carried out in the Juan Fernandez Archipelago, within a 5-year period (1982-1987), are compared. In both studies the absence of Ascaris lumbricoides has been persistent, having no explanation for this phenomenon due to the favorable environmental conditions for the development of the quoted parasite. In the second survey Cryptosporidium sp. was studied, finding a higher frequency than that detected in rural areas of the V Region.
