CHU, Tu-Bin et al. Enterobius vermicularis infection is well controlled among preschool children in nurseries of Taipei City, Taiwan. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.5, pp.646-648. ISSN 0037-8682.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822012000500020.

INTRODUCTION: Whether Enterobius vermicularis (pinworm) infections among preschool children in Taipei City had truly declined was investigated. METHODS: A total of 6,661 preschool children from 28 nurseries were randomly selected from 4 major geographic districts in Taipei City to examine the status of pinworm infection by using adhesive thin cellophane tape swab method. RESULTS: The overall prevalence of pinworm infection was 0.5% (30/6,661). Boys (0.6%; 21/3,524) had higher prevalence than girls (0.3%; 9/3,137) (p=0.06). Southern district (0.6%; 10/1,789) showed insignificantly higher prevalence than Western district (0.2%; 1/606) (p=0.22). CONCLUSIONS: Pinworm screening program remains necessary for some parts of Taipei City.
