A coproparasitological study was carried out on the population that attended the Provincial Hygiene and Epidemiology Center of Bayamo, Granma province, with a total of 2725 patients in the period from May 2018 to May 2019. Together these studies were taken from hospitals, from outbreaks of schools and work centers corresponding mostly to the health area of ​​polyclinic 13 de Marzo, etc. The main objective of this study is to identify the bacterial and parasitic agent that causes symptoms of dysentery, dehydration and bloody diarrhea, secretory diarrhea, profuse diarrhea, with 4% corresponding to shigella diarrhea with 111 cases, 3, 7% corresponding to vibrocholerae for 102 cases. Salmonella diarrhea occupies 3.3% for a total of 91 cases. In the case of secretory and bloody diarrhea it was occupied by histolytic E, shigella causing 4% of asymptomatic diarrhea, with mild symptoms it was occupied by coccideas and within them the crystoporidium in children in the children's hospital and nursery schools with ages between 1 to 5 years to occupy 23.5% of 50 isolated cases of coccideas and 5% found of helminths (pinworms) in school age. With the development of this work we arrive at conclusions from which recommendations and suggestions emerge that will be put into practice to improve the diagnosis in the health areas and thus improve the health and quality of life of the population.
