Abstract

MACHADO, Ricardo Luiz Dantas et al. Evaluation of four techniques for diagnosis of Giardia lamblia in children's stool from Belém city, Para State, Brazil. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2001, vol.34, n.1, pp. 91-93. ISSN 0037-8682.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822001000100014.

We report the evaluation of four techniques for Giardia lamblia diagnosis in children's stool. The Iron haematoxilin staining and direct examination with lugol showed lower positivity, while the method of Faust et al. Continues to be a good option for G. lamblia diagnosis and Immunoenzymatic assay increases the detection of this parasite.

Keywords : Giardia lamblia; Diagnosis; Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay; Stool; Coproantigen.
