Abstract: A total of 130 Zoró Indians from the Brazilian Amazon were observed as part of an epidemiological survey. Black piedra was found in 74 (56.9%) individuals. Infection rates between the sexes were not significantly different. The age group least infected comprised the children, 0-10 years of age. The authors comment on the epidemiology of the infection among the Zoró.
