dc.description.abstractStool samples were obtained from individuals admitted to three hospitals in Basra during November 1997-May 1998. Of 40 patients with sickle-cell anaemia, 25 [‎62.5%]‎ had parasitic infections. In the apparently healthy comparison group, 26 of 175 individuals [‎14.8%]‎ had intestinal parasitic infections, a statistically significant difference. The most common intestinal parasites isolated in the sickle-cell patients were Blastocystis hominis [‎36%]‎ and Giardia lamblia [‎28%]‎. The isolation rate of Cryptosporidium species in sickle-cell patients [‎5%]‎ was not significantly different from that in apparently healthy individuals [‎1.14%]‎. We report for the first time the isolation of Isospora belli from a sickle-cell patient in Iraq and the Mediterranean regionEN
