ALARCON, Ruth Semira Rodriguez; AMATO NETO, Vicente; GAKIYA, Erika  and  BEZERRA, Rita Cristina. An evaluation of the efficacy of the CSF method for diagnosing intestinal helminthiases. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2007, vol.40, n.3, pp. 359-360. ISSN 0037-8682.

The recently proposed CSF method for diagnosing intestinal helminthiases was compared with the other methods (direct; Faust et al.; spontaneous sedimentation in water; and Kato-Katz) that are routinely for this purpose. The CSF method performed satisfactorily, thus showing that this technique can be adopted for use in diagnoses or epidemiological analyses.

Keywords : Intestinal helminthiases; CSF method; Evaluation.
