Distribution of urinary schistosomiasis among high school students in Utukwang, Obudu, Cross River State of Nigeria



Global Journal of Medical Sciences 2(1): 19-22



Urine samples collected from 200 high school students in Otukwang community, Obudu, Cross River State, Nigeria, during December 2000-March 2001, were examined for urinary schistosomiasis (caused by Schistosoma haematobium). Results revealed an overall prevalence of 91% with peak prevalence in children between 9-12 years old. There was a higher intensity of infection in females than males (t-test, P<0.05). Mean haematuria positively correlated with mean ova/10 ml of urine.
