  1. Seroprevalence of Toxocara infection in middle-class and disadvantaged children in northern Spain (Gipuzkoa, Basque Country).

    Article - En anglais

    The prevalence of human toxocarosis in disadvantaged socioeconomic population in Europe is unknown.

    In Gipuzkoa the seroprevalence in middle-class children 2-to 5-years-old, and 6-to 16-year-olds, was zero (n=135) and 4.4% (n=320), respectively.

    In contrast, among socially and economically disadvantaged children the figures were 37% (n=27) and 65.7% (n - 64).

    This high prevalence obliges us to consider toxocarosis as a public health problem.
