Role of gastrointestinal parasites in urticaria
Srabani Ghosh, AJ Kanwar, Sandipan Dhar, Sur Kaur
The role of gastrointestinal parasites as aetiological factor in chronic urticaria was evaluated in 300 patients. Fifty nine (19.66%) patients were detected to have intestinal parasites compared to 18% among the control group. The difference was statistically insignificant. No significant improvement was noted with specific treatment of helminthic infestation.
