Abstract:

Domestic sewage is an usual vehicle for human pathogens including parasitic helminth eggs. Our aim is the parasitological characterisation of the wastewater of the gouro collector of Abidjan city in C te d'Ivoire. The Bailenger's method for detection and quantification helminths eggs was used to process samples four sampling sites of the collector during five months. We observed ten taxa that are member of the nematod, cestod and trematod classes. A taxonomic variability was observed from a sampling site to another. During The local rainy season an increase of the parasitic load was noted.
