Malawi study signals need for more research on female genital schistosomiasis


, : Malawi study signals need for more research on female genital schistosomiasis. Tdr News: 8-8

A survey was carried out in Malawi in 1994 to assess the extent of female genital pathology associated with Schistosoma haematobium infection. Thirty-three of 51 women with urinary schistosomiasis had schistosome eggs in their cervix, vagina and/or vulva. There was a significant correlation between the size of the genital lesion and the number of helminth eggs.
