Abstract

The study consisted of forty-one patients hospitalized at the Child Health Department of the Gadjah Mada Hospital in Yogyakarta: 24 children were suffering from PCM with a body weight of more than 60% of the Harvard standard and 17 children from PCM with a body weight of less than 60% of the Harvard standard.

The stools of these patients were examined for Giardia lamblia. The result was I6 (39.02%) positive. The Lipiodol Absorption Test of the patients with Giardia lamblia revealed :

  1. 40% from the PCM with a body weight of more than 60% of the Harvard standard were negative.
  2. 8I.82% from the PCM with a body weight of less than 60% of the Harvard standard were negative.

The lower the nutritional status the higher the risk for Giardia infection.
