[sterility as a sequela of tubal schistosomiasis].a 21-year old african women presented with primary sterility in the outpatient department of our university hospital. screening examinations, including ultrasound, demonstrated a tumour of 5.8 x 4.1 cm diameter on the left ovary. while performing laparotomy to extirpate this tumour, bilateral occlusion of the tubes was discovered by chromopertubation.this diagnosis led us to perform bilateral salpingostomy and reimplantation of the fallopian tubes. in addition to the ovarian tumour (dermoid), fr ...19957665061
[the prevalence of schistosomiasis in togo. a cross-sectional study conducted in a school setting].as a prelude to a national campaign to control schistosomiasis in togo, mass screening of school children in 22 prefectures was undertaken to determine the extent of endemic schistosomiasis. children were randomly selected for testing. in each case, stool examinations using by the kato-katz method and urine tests (centrifugation of 10 ml) were performed to detect schistosome eggs. a total of 2511 children were tested. the sex ratio was 1.7 and mean age 10.4 years (range: 5 to 20 years). the inci ...199910472583
