     Background: It has been believed that parasites are mainly associated with eosinophilia, especially the tissue parasites. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted to compare the rate of eosinophilia among the healthy labors that had and did not have parasites. Results: Among 1,337 labors, the eosinophilia was found in 16 of 69 individuals with parasites (23.2%) and in 266 of 1,268 without parasites (21.0%). By Chi-square test, there was no statistically significant difference, (p 0.661). When the parasites were categorized into: Strongyloides, hookworm, liver fluke and Taenia spp., the rate of eosinophilia in patients with each parasite was not different from each other or from the individuals without parasites. Conclusion: The prevalences of eosinophilia among individuals with parasites including Strongyloides, hookworm, liver fluke or Taenia spp. infestation and those.. View More»
