Epidemiological aspects of schistosomiasis

Revista Cubana de Higiene y Epidemiologia 19(3): 321-335
Epidemiological aspects of schistosomiasis
After discussing the main characteristics of schistosomiasis, its occurrence in Cuba is discussed analyzing cases reported, transmission possibilities and established control measures in the country. Autochthonous cases have never been diagnosed; in recent years, many cases of Schistosoma haematobium and S. mansoni imported from foreign countries were reported. Possibilities for local transmission of S. haematobium do not seem to exist, but there is potential risk of S. mansoni.
