Title Strongyloidosis in miners of the Ostrava-Karviná coalfield
Original title Strongloidóza u zaměstnanců Ostravsko-Karvinského uhelného revíru [in Czech]
Bibliographic information Mar. 1973, Vol.25, No.3, p.102-103. 14 ref.
Abstract An account of 7 cases of strongyloidosis recorded in the Ostrava-Karviná coalfield during 1961-1971. Systematic parasitological analysis of the faeces of 1,747 miners conducted in 1970-1971 did not reveal any new cases, which demonstrates the sporadic nature of the disease in the coalfield concerned.
