Avaliação da sensibilidade da técnica de eclosão de miracídios, de Suzuki, em comparação com outros processos empregados no diagnóstico da esquistossomose mansônica

In order to simplify the diagnosis of Mansorís schistosomiasis, the use of stool examinations based miracidial hatching has recently been considered. The sensitivity of the Suzukis technique was evaluated in comparison to those of Kato-Katz, Hojfman, Pons and Janer and Chieff and cols. The former technique showed itself to be useful, yielding better results when large numbers of eggs were found in the stool, but did not surpass the performance of the other above mentioned techniques.
