Abstract

Protozoa and parasitic helminthes are the reasons for several disorders in the human digestive tract such as diarrhea, abdominal pain, vomiting, appendicitis and intestinal ulcers. A total number of 80 appendixes specimens were collected from 36 males and 44 females. All the specimens were eradicated from appendicitis patients aged 4-50 years old who underwent a surgery. A total number 48 (60%) of 80 specimens was recorded for parasitic infections of infected appendixes. Four species of parasites were detected, the highest prevalence was Entamoeba histolytica 85.4% followed by Enterobius vermicularis 6.2%, Giardia lamblia 4.2% and Trichomonas hominis. Depending on age and gender a highest prevalence of parasitic infections of infected appendixes in the age group 11-20 years old (43.8%), while, the prevalence infection in males 56.3% was higher than females 43.7%. The present study reported different histological changes in infected appendixes according to different species of parasites when compared with control specimen.
