Abstract

Nematodes larvae on the mammalian host are the main concern of the study. It focused on the identification of the three most common intestinal nematodes present on the pupils of Dasmarinas Bagong Bayan Elementary School aged 7 to 12. The stool samples were randomly collected on selected pupils of this school. Identification of possible larval infection on stool sample was done by examining it under the microscope and letting each nematode species photomicrograph. The identified nematodes were Ascaris lumbricoides Trichuris trichiura and Enterobius vermicularis. The most significant contributing factor to the prevalence of nematodes was the source of the drinking water that comes from the deep well.
