The prevalence of the disease is higher in girls. and at school age. This study performed to evaluate effect of education about preventive behaviors of pediculosis among mothers on morbidity rate of their daughters to pediculosis capitis in primary schools. Methods: This was a quasi-experimental study in two groups (case and control) carried out in 2016. The study samples were composed of 414 mothers and their daughters studying in elementary schools in Lowshan city (Guilan province, Iran). Simple random sampling method used. We provided the intervention group with group discussion in five sessions. There was no intervention in the mothers of the control group. The rate of studentschr('39') infection was determined in two stages before and after the intervention and compared in two groups.  The data were analyzed using SPSS windows version 16 by chi-square and t-test. Results: The results showed that among 414 daughters, 78 (18.8%) were infected with Pediculus Capitis, 38 (18.4%) were in the case group and 40 (19.2%) were in the control group. After intervention in the case group, the rate of infection of girls decreased from 18.4% to 8.2%, but did not change in the control group. Chi-square test showed a significant difference between motherchr('39')s education in group discussion and morbidity rate of pediculosis capitis in their daughters after participation (P<0.05). Conclusion: The findings showed that group discussion on preventive behaviors of pediculosis in mothers led to decrease in morbidity in daughters.http://payeshjournal.ir/article-1-76-en.htmlpreventive behaviorspediculosismothersgroup discussionschools
