No mes de Fevereiro foram analisadas 104 amostras e o percentual encontrado, 9,36%, foi maior em relacao a Janeiro com 3 amostras apresentando positividade para Entamoeba coli, 3 para Endolimax nana e 2 para Giardia lamblia como representado no Grafico 2.
Los parasitos mas frecuentes fueron Blastocystis hominis, Endolimax nana y Entamoeba coli, mientras que los menos prevalentes fueron Cyclospora cayetanensis, Trichomonas hominis, Iodamoeba butschlii e Hymenolepis nana, la frecuencia de los parasitos fue estadisticamente diferente segun el metodo empleado, sin embargo, la confiabilidad o concordancia fue muy buena para la mayoria de los parasitos identificados (tabla 3).
De las cuatro especies de protozoos hallados, Entamoeba coli procede del humano, lo cual sugiere una antropozoonosis, mas aun, teniendo en cuenta que varios de estos animales fueron decomisados de mercados ilegales o donados por personas que los habian tenido cautivos por periodos variados.
Entre los protozoos no patogenos se detectaron quistes de Endolimax nana (47,2%), Entamoeba coli (32,4%), lodamoeba butchilii (4,2%) y de Chilomastix mesnili (0,56%).
Dentre as especies de enteroparasitas que foram encontradas nos exames das amostras dos individuos pesquisados, a maior prevalencia foi Endolimax nana (6,5%), Entamoeba coli (6,3%) e Giardia intestinalis (3,5%)
