Segundo Borges, Marciano e Oliveira (2011), os enteroparasitas mais frequentes no Brasil sao os helmintos Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura e ancilostomideos, os protozoarios Entamoeba histolytica e Giardia lamblia, caracterizados por serem patogenicos, e os comensais Endolimax nana e Entamoeba coli.
