Abstract

During 2002 to 2011, 275 of 6828 children with giardiasis in Israel were reported with recurrent, over 6 months apart, episodes. The only significant multivariable-adjusted risk predictor of a recurrent episode was non-Jewish ethnicity (hazard ratio, 4.61 [95% confidence interval, 3.32-6.40]; P < .001), also accompanied by significant interaction with lower maternal education.
