Methodology: A form was applied to the participants containing questions about their hygienic- Sanitary. There was a distribution of sterile parasitological collector and later the collection, the fecal biological material was identified and sent for laboratory analysis. Results: The sample consisted of 111 participants, aged 1 to 70 years. The profile of the participants attended showed a predominance of females, 78 (70.27%). Regarding the occurrence of diarrhea in the family, 86 (77.48%) said they had had diarrheal episodes.
