Also 386 Scotch tape tests were used in school children in different age and sex groups.

Non pathogen protozoa prevalences were : E.coli 3.5% , Blastocystis hominis 3.15%, Iodamoeba butschlii 0.66%, Endolimax nana0.15% ,andDientamoebafragilis 0.11%.The highest prevalence were (41.2%) belong to 5 to 9 years old children, and 4.1% of them had both Giardia and E.vermicularisatthesametime.Giardiaprevalence during spring and summer (18.9%) had significant difference comparing with autumn and winter (14.81% )P<0.005, but prevalences of E. vermicularis showdnoseasonal variation.In rural area Prevalences (28.39% ) and in urban area (23.8%) showed significant difference. P<0.005.In rural area "prevalences of Ehistolytica (4.32%), Strengyloides stercolaris (1.85%), and Hook worms (0.62%) had significant difference with urban area (2.51 %, 0.6%, 0%). H.nana (1.26%), E.vermicularis (8.17%) prevalence in town had significant difference with urban area (0%, 6.17%,P<0.005).In 386 scotch tape tests the prevalence of E.vermicularis in young male was 23.46% butin yuung female was 32.63% , demonstrated significant difference (P<0.005).
