A study was carried out from a village “Chandra” rural area near Kot Lakhpat about 15 Kilometers away from Lahore. 1010 cases could be screened out of whom 253 cases were suffering from hookworm infection 25.04%. Hb levels were estimated by cynamethemoglobin method and quantitative estimation of hookwork ova in stool was carried out by Stoll’s Modified Egg counting technique. The result of study show statistically relationship between haemoglobin levels and number of hook worm per gram of faeces with a coefficient of correlation of the order of R=0.563 for 253 hook worm positive cases. Which reflects a high degree of negative correlation. Negative correlation of hookworm infection load and degree of iron deficiency anaemia has therefore been proved.
