 en INTESTINAL PARASITES AND NUTRITIONAL STATUS OF NIGERIAN CHILDREN
ADEKUNLE, Lola

Abstract

The nutritional status of children with heavy intestinal parasites was studied as compared to children of similar socio-economic background and characteristics with non parasitic infections. The result revealed the fact that the children with heavy intestinal parasites were shorter in heights and lower in weights than non infected children. They also exhibited more skin infections, angular scars and dental caries than their non infected counter parts.
