A similar state of weakness was observed by Arthur Neiva in the children in the Iguape region, which was the result, in this case, of hookworm and malaria; these elements, according to the physician, compromised the physical development of the children and their performance in school, since it reduced their capacity for assimilation. The global distribution, frequency and types of neurological, cognitive and mental health disorders associated with key infections are presented in Table classification purposes, infections Cited by:
