Cross-sectional study of parasitic causes of diarrhea in patients visiting a university hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

\ nDiarrhea is thought about an international health problem and a major mortality cause in children much less than 5 years of age. Contagious diarrhea is generally connected with morbidity in the form of digestive disorder and poor nutrition. One of the major root causes of diarrhea is intestinal parasitic infections. In this research, we examine the parasitic root causes of diarrhea in patients visiting King Abdulaziz University Hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia throughout 2014. A total amount of 627 stool samples was obtained throughout 2014 at the Parasitology laboratory for feces analysis. 4 hundred and eighty specimens were negative for digestive tract bloodsuckers and 88 non-diarrheic specimens were positive for intestinal tract parasites. The most frequent bloodsuckers seen in diarrheic samples were Giardia lamblia and Entamoeba histolytica. Cryptosporidium was found in only 2 diarrheic specimens.
