AbstractEight heavy metals were measured. They included Cadmium, Lead, Zinc, Nickel, Copper, Manganese, Mercury and Chromium by means of an atomic absorption spectrophotometer, were measured these heavy metals for two kinds of intestinal worms (Cestode and Nematode) isolated from two types of fishes the year in four parts of Diwaniya (Diwaniya center, Shamiya, Hamza and Afaq). Cestodes isolated from the Barbus grypus registered high of mercury concentrations that reached 37.667 Microgram/ gram and 37.300 in Hamza and Diwaniya rivers, chrome concentrations was low in the tape worms 0.166 Microgram/ gram while nematodes, the concentrations was 0.157 Microgram/ gram in Shamiya river. cestoda and nematodais isolated from the intestines of Liza abu registered high concentrations in autumn, cestoda had the most of the concentrations of heavy metals, Mercury and nickel had high concentrations of (35.783, 25.840) Microgram/gram, copper and chrome had lower concentrations (1.881, 0.174) Microgram/gram in Hamza river, nematode registered high concentrations that reached 33.994 Microgram/ gram in mercury in Hamza river. .
