AbstractThe 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.
