Abstract: This study aimed to find the prevalence of Entamoeba histolytica and Giardia lambilia infections in Qena Province Egypt, by using the microscopic methods. The study was conducted on the (150) stool samples from diarrhea - suffering patients. Patients ranged in age (1 to larger than 50) years old and from both sexes and different regions to estimate the prevalence of some intestinal parasitic diseases in the general population using data from private laboratories in Qena Province, using the microscopic methods to distinguish between Entamoeba histolytica and Giardia lambilia infections. The most common parasite was Entamoeba histolytica (90 %) and Giardia lambilia was (40 %). With regard to sex (54.1 %) of males, (45.9 %) of females patients have Entamoeba histolytica in supplements. In conclusion Entamoeba histolytica often occurs more flammable supplements than usual. While the infection with parasite Giardia lambilia in females was (61.7 %) larger than in males (38.3 %).
