The three main species infecting humans are Schistosoma haematobium, S. japonicum, and S. mansoni. Two other species, more localized. Schistosomiasis, also known as bilharzia, is a disease caused by parasitic Most human infections are caused by Schistosoma mansoni. Diagnosis for intestinal Schistosoma mansoni lacks sensitivity and is arduous to conduct. The standard diagnostic tests, Kato-Katz (KK) and circulating cathodic.

In children aged less than 5 years, there is limited evidence esquistosomasis these doses may be less effective, and further research will help optimise the dose for this age-group. Status of knowledge after more than 20 years. DNA extraction from urine. Inside the host, the larvae grow into adult worms; these produce eggs, which are excreted in the faeces. Hepatic periportal fibrosis is caused by the T cell-depen-dent granuloma that develops around schistosome eggs.

A relatively short-lived and free-swimming stage, the miracidium, hatches from the egg found in human stool and infects the snail intermediate host, where it gives rise to sporocysts that produce numerous free-swimming cercariae.
