Out of 528 faecal samples,256 children(80 males,32.5%) and 272 adults(128 males,25% and 144 woman, 30.5%) showed helmenthic infection in rainy season.Much variation was seen in the prevalence of diseases in rainy and winter seasons in all age groups.The infected individuals were treated with albendazol just after rainy season.Three weeks after anti-helmenthic treatment the infection rate among them was lower; health education plays a role in reducing the of infection.
