Schistosomiasis is a disease that is caused by parasites (genus Schistosoma) that enter humans by attaching to the skin, penetrating it, and then migrating through the venous system to the portal veins where the parasites produce eggs and eventually, the symptoms of acute or chronic disease (for example, fever, abdominal discomfort, blood in stools).

INTRODUCTION. Schistosomiasis is a disease caused by infection with parasitic blood flukes. The three major species are Schistosoma mansoni (Africa and South America), S.

japonicum (East Asia), and S. haematobium (Africa and the Middle East). The two minor species are S. mekongi (Laos, Cambodia) and S. intercalatum (West and Central Africa). The parasites that cause schistosomiasis live in.Schistosomiasis is a disease affecting over million people in developing countries.

It is caused by worms that need particular species of fresh water snails for completing their life cycle, and developments in Third World countries have spread and increased the severity of the disease.
