The Eggs of Schistosoma bovis, S. mattheei and S. haematobium

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  18 November 2009

From the Department of Parasitology, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Extract

Measurements of 500 eggs respectively of S. bovis, S. mattheei and S. haematobium were made. These measurements included length, maximum breadth, and breadth at a point 50 microns from the non-spiked end of the egg. Statistical analysis of the results shows that it is possible, to differentiate between the three groups of eggs.

Reasons are adduced for suggesting that the statement that S. mattheei cannot infect man is not well founded; the question is under active investigation by the author.
