In Senegal, an efficient and effective struggle against intestinal parasites and there, their affections (bordering 40 % of the global nature of the tropical diseases other than the malaria especially in the African regions), requires essentially a good knowledge on one hand of their frequencies and geographical distributions, and on the other hand of their assessments and epidemiological distributions, and on the other hand of their assessments and epidemiological evolutions. It is from this perspective; a study was led to Medical Center of Biology Analysis (MCBA) at Abass NDAO Hospital in Dakar during the first nine months of 2013. During this period every sample of stools underwent a macroscopic exam followed of the microscopic exam (each stool sample underwent a macroscopic examination followed by a direct microscopic examination and after concentration according to Ritchie's method). At the end of study, the exploitation of the data emanating from 125 patients got the following results: An overall prevalence of 16, 8%. Variation of the parasitic carriage according to different parameters (month, age, sex, consistency of the stool and reason for diagnosis). Specific parasitic prevalences with 10,4% for Entamoeba coli;2,4% for Trichomonas intestinalis or Ascaris lumbricoides and 0,8 % for Entamoeba histolytica, Trichuris trichiura ,Strongyloides stercoralis ,Hymenolepis nana or Taenia sp;. Prevalence of the poly parasitism is 1, 6% and an ascendancy of protozooses with a prevalence of 13,6 % against 5,6 % for helminthiasis.
