Both dog and cat roundworms are mildly zoonotic geohelminths
The parasites identified among the geohelminths were Giardia lamblia, Schistosoma mansoni and hookworm (Necator americanus).
Geohelminth infection was assessed from a faeces sample following the formal ether concentration technique .
are involved in several human infections such as cutaneous larva migrans caused by A.
Control of geohelminths
by delivery of targeted chemotherapy through schools.
Double-blind placebo controlled study of concurrent administration of albendazole and praziquantel in school children with schistosomiasis and geohelminths
However, the high burden in some of our communities of less exotic helminth parasites, such as schistosomes and the geohelminths
, must always be remembered when investigating cases of eosinophilia.

The major groups of parasites include geohelminths
, schistosomes and protozoans (1) that are associated with malnutrition, iron deficiency anaemia, and impaired growth and cognitive development caused by decreased appetite, nutrient loss, malabsorption and decreased nutrient utilisation.
