  • Schistosomiasis

    Schistosomiasis  is a disease of poverty that leads to chronic ill-health. Infection is acquired when people come into contact with fresh water infested with the larval forms (cercariae) of parasitic blood flukes, known as schistosomes.

  • Schistosomiasis

    Symptoms of schistosomiasis are caused by the body’s reaction to the worms’ eggs.Intestinal schistosomiasis can result in abdominal pain, diarrhoea and blood in the stool. Liver enlargement is common in advanced cases, and is frequently associated with an accumulation of fluid in the peritoneal cavity and hypertension of the abdominal blood vessels. In such cases there may also be enlargement of the spleen.

    Seventy-eight patients  were diagnosed with schistosomiasis; 47% were infected in southern Africa. Twenty-four percent had specific symptoms, 57% had eosinophilia, and in 17 patients (22%) Schistosoma ova were found. Eleven travelers suffered from Katayama syndrome. Of the subgroup of 42 persons screened for schistosomiasis, 15 (36%) had schistosomal antibodies; the majority of these persons (10/15 [67%]) were infected in southern Africa.
