  • Schistosomiasis

    Schistosomiasis  (also known as bilharziasis) is a chronic disease caused by past or present infection with parasitic blood flukes of any of five Schistosomaspecies: S. mansoni, S. japonicum, S. mekongi, S. intercalatum, or S. haematobium. 

  • Schistosomiasis

    Schistosoma parasites can penetrate the skin of persons who are wading, swimming, bathing, or washing in contaminated water. Within days after becoming infected, you may develop a rash or itchy skin. Fever, chills, cough, and muscle aches can begin within 1-2 months of infection. Most people have no symptoms at this early phase of infection.

  • Schistosomiasis

    Safe and effective medication is available for treatment of both urinary and intestinal schistosomiasis. Praziquantel, a prescription medication, is taken for 1-2 days to treat infections caused by all Schistosoma species.In Singapore, there is no report of urinary schistosomiasis. There was only one case report of an 83 year-old female with Schistosoma japonicum infection presenting with bloody diarrhoea.
