Abstract:

The clear-cellulose-tape preparation is the most widely used procedure for the detection of human pinworm infections ( ). Adult worms inhabit the large intestine and rectum; however, the eggs are not normally found in fecal material. The adult female migrates out the anal opening and deposits the eggs on the perianal skin, usually during the night. The eggs, and occasionally the adult female worms, stick to the sticky surface of the cellulose tape. These cellulose tape preparations are submitted to the laboratory, where they are examined under the microscope. Commercial collection systems are also available.

Figure 9.6.1–2

Diagram of a commercial kit (Evergreen Scientific) for use in sampling the perianal area for the presence of pinworm () eggs. On the left is the vial containing the sampler, which has sticky tape around the end. Once this is applied to the perianal area and eggs are picked up on the tape, the label area is placed at one end of the slide. The sticky tape is rolled down the slide and attaches to the glass. This device is easy to use and provides an area sufficient for adequate sampling. A minimum of four to six consecutive negative tapes are required to rule out a pinworm infection; most laboratories are accepting four rather than requesting the full six. (From reference .)
