The important protozoan pathogens are Entamoeba histolytica, Giardia lamblia and certain newer pathogens like Cryptosporidium, Cyclospora and Isospora. Amoebiasis is a common infection of the human gastrointestinal tract caused by the protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica. The intestinal parasitic infection in urban and rural areas of Bareilly district was worked out with respect to different age groups and in different sexes. In the present study, out of 82 samples of male individuals from urban areas of district Bareilly, 26 (37.71%) and in rural areas out of 76 samples 28 (36.84%) were positive for parasitic ova/cysts. In females from urban areas of district Bareilly, out of 61 samples, 22 (36.07%) were found to be infected, while out of 88 samples, 31(35.23 %) females were positive for protozoan infection from rural areas.
