The number of people examined were 401 people and out of this number 9 people were mf positive. The Mf rate was 2.24% and the density was 5.69 per 20 mm3. Periodicity study was done in 6 positive persons. Blood was taken from each patient every 2 hours in 24 hours. The highest density was 16.43 per mm3 found in 1 patient. While the highest mean of Mf at 24.00 (3.29 mf per 20 mm3). According to the analysis it was found that the parasite was nocturnally periodic in 4 patients and nocturnally sub periodic in 2 patients.
