Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate the epidemiological factors of trachoma in the Simão village. Methods: Through a field research, 412 individuals (178 men and 234 women) were examined in a village of the Araripe plateau in Ceará State. The median age was 34 years for both genders. Traditional data from trachoma epidemiology were collected and diagnosis of trachoma was performed using binocular loupes of x 2.5. Results: 304 (73.8%) individuals were normal and 108 (26.2%) were trachomatous (5 TF, 98 TS, 3 TT and 2 CO). Regarding socio-economic factors relating to individuals, the illiterate were 1.9 times more likely to have trachoma (p
