Author(s): Dr. Saket Kumar Singh and Dr. Ritu Sharma
Abstract: Worm infestation continue to be among the most common diseases affecting children from developing countries. Major worm infestation of public health importance include Ascariasis, Trichuriasis, Hookworm, and Taenia solium, which are transmitted through contaminated soil. Although most helminthic infections are mild and often asymptomatic, but moderate to heavy worm infestations are generally associated with growth faltering, nutritional compromise, anemia and suboptimal academic performance among children. Migration of larval or adult worms also underpins pulmonary and gastrointestinal morbidity in affected children.
