the diagnostic value of haematuria and proteinuria in schistosoma haematobium infection in southern nigeria.haematuria and proteinuria as detected by chemical reagent strips correlated moderately (r = 0.7) with prevalence and intensity of infection with schistosoma haematobium in an area of anambra state, nigeria. differences attributable to age and sex were also reflected in a similar pattern, all peaks occurring in the 5-14 year age group. the differences observed with varying levels of intensity and haematuria at both 10 and 50 erythrocytes/microliter (p < 0.001) and proteinuria at 0.3 g/dl (p < 0. ...19921452992
schistosoma haematobium cercariae transmission patterns in freshwater systems of anambra state, nigeria.the seasonality of infection of bulinus (ph.) globosus, the snail host of schistosoma haematobium is reported. the pattern of snail infection was shown to vary with the type of habitats. the cercarial "transmission potential" was calculated based on the number of infected snails and the level of cercarial production. it is consequently assumed that the transmission pattern varies with season and habitat type. dry season transmission potential was found to be high in running water habitats while ...19902127166
investigation into the prevalence of urinary schistosomiasis in the agulu lake area of anambra state, epidemiological surveys for urinary schistosomiasis caused by schistosoma haematobium in communities around agulu lake, anambra state, nigeria, between 1990 and 1992, the infection was found to be endemic in the area, especially in three towns: nri, agulu, and adazi nnukwu. the prevalence rates varied between these communities and with the year. inter-town prevalence rates ranged from 5.96% to 54.00%. intravillage prevalence rates ranged between 5.50% to 96.43%. prevalence rates were highest ...19947930452
urinary bilharziasis among nigerian school children: a study in the agulu lake basin, anambra state of nigeria.following the observation of cases of haematuria among a secondary school population near agulu lake, an area not previously regarded as an endemic focus of schistosomiasis, a field study on urinary bilharziasis was carried out among primary school pupils in the three towns surrounding agulu lake which was suspected to be the source of the infection. it was discovered that the area is an endemic focus of schistosoma haematobium with prevalence rates ranging up to 77.6% among the primary school p ...19958634229
urinary schistosomiasis among school children in nigeria: consequences of indigenous beliefs and water contact activities.a study of urinary schistosomiasis in umueze-anam, anambra state, nigeria, showed a schistosoma haematobium infection of 26% (85) among school children with no significant difference by sex except when age as a variable is introduced. eleven percent (37) of the 333 children were positive for haematuria; all these 37 children lived within 1.0 km of the water sources. of the 85 infected children, swimming and laundering accounted for 65% and 48% of all water contact activities, for boys and girls ...19979881116
urinary schistosomiasis among pregnant women in some endemic tropical semi - urban communities of anambra state, nigeria.urinary schistosomiasis is caused by the deposition of eggs by adult flukes in the blood vessels surrounding the bladder of the infected host. schistosomiasis is ranked the second most important parasitic disease of man and undoubtedly the most important of helminth origin. this paper reports the prevalence of schistosoma haematobium infection among pregnant women in some endemic tropical semi - urban communities of anambra state, nigeria, screened using medi-test combi 9 and urine centrifugatio ...201223202602
