The prevalence of Antibodies to Toxoplasma gondii in dogs and cats were determined by an indirect haemagglutination (IHA) test. 3% of the dogs' sera and 15.2% of that of the cats showed titres diagnostically significant of toxoplasmosis in humans; their possible role in transmission of toxoplasmosis to humans in Saudi Arabia is discussed.
The Indirect Haemagglutination (IHA) test was used routinely for the diagnosis of hydatid disease in patients at the King Abdul Aziz and King Khalid University Hospitals, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Among 52 patients with suspected human hydatid disease, 30 positive cases were detected by means of serodiagnosis. As a control group, the level of hydatid IHA(More)
A total of 23,516 stool specimens collected from patients attending three medical centres in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, were examined for intestinal parasites. Of these 5737 (24.4%) were positive. Entamoeba histolytica (8.8%) and Giardia lamblia (6.3%) were the commonest parasites found, and in the age group of one to 15 years. Giardia was found in 14.8% of(More)

A one-year study of patients (0-120 months of age) with diarrhoea at King Abdel-Aziz University Hospital (KAUH) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, detected two cases of cryptosporidiosis. Stool specimens from 174 children with diarrhoea and negative for other parasitic infection were examined using a safranin-methylene blue stain (S-MB). Two children (L.1%) were(More)
A total of 1,167 stool specimens collected from 0.6-6 years old patients attending King Abdel Aziz University Hospital (KAUH) in Riyadh, were examined for intestinal parasites. Of these 243 (20.8%) were positive. Giardia lamblia (13.5) and Enterobius vermicularis (4.2%), were the commonest parasites found. Other parasites present include Ascaris(More)
Among 72 patients clinically suspected of Entamoeba histolytica (E. histolytica) infections, 39 positive cases (54%) were detected serologically by the indirect hemagglutination (IHA) test. Parasitologically, microscopic examination of three consecutive stool specimens from all these patients indicated positivity for E. histolytica cysts and or trophozoites(More)
Four hundred and thirteen patients with skin ulcers were clinically diagnosed as suffering from cutaneous leishmaniasis; 82 (approximately 20%) of these cases were confirmed microscopically. Ulceration occurred mainly on the exposed parts of the body. Of the total cases 69% were Egyptian labourers, 14% Saudis and the remaining 17% Syrian, Pakistani, Yemeni(More)
