 The Editor,

 Sir,

Genetics studies often depend on the certainty of correct genotypes in both parents.  In Jamaica, it is common knowledge that some fathers may not be the true biological father but the prevalence of impaternity is not published because of the difficulties and expense of determining the biological fathers by DNA studies.

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.288
Pages: 
361–6

The study presents a snapshot of intestinal parasitic infections in a Cuban primary school. The high prevalence and the significant association between low personal hygiene practices with the presence of this organisms demonstrate the need to entrench good hygiene habits in the first years of life.

ABSTRACT

Background: Infections by intestinal parasites are a major public health problem worldwide, especially among children in developing countries. As the prevalence of parasitic infection is different among and within countries, there is a need for periodical prevalence evaluation to appropriate control strategies.

Underestimated Prevalence of Chronic Heart Failure among Elderly Residing in Care Homes in Aruba

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.277
Pages: 
610–5
Synopsis: 
The prevalence of chronic heart failure (CHF) among the elderly in care homes in Aruba is high (31%) and underestimated. B-type natriuretic peptide testing adds value to the usual diagnostic work-up for CHF in these elderly.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Diagnosing chronic heart failure (CHF) is important, since subsequent treatments by medication and cardiac intervention improve quality of life. However, accurate CHF diagnosis in the elderly residing in care homes (residents) is hampered by suboptimal diagnostic tools, co-morbidity and physician’s unawareness of CHF. We sought to estimate the CHF prevalence among Aruban residents.
