ALVAREZ MAESTRO, Mario et al. Bladder schistosomiasis: Case report and bibliographic review. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2010, vol.63, n.7, pp.554-558. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To report a new case of bladder schistosomiasis. Methods: A 21-year-old patient came to our consultation with gross hematuria several weeks before, existing reddish lesions in the cystoscopy that suggested the existence of an atypical bladder tumor. Results: After intense blood and urine test, ultrasonography and intravenous urography, transurethral resection of bladder was performed and the diagnosis on histological examination was bladder schistosomiasis. Conclusions: Given the high prevalence of schistosomiasis in the sub-Saharan countries and later clinical epidemiologic implications, the appearance of macro or microscopic hematuria in black race immigrants, or even any urinary symptoms, it is necessary a complete evaluation, at least with a parasitological analysis (being the bilharziasis the most probably reason). The patients who have suffered severe urinary schistosomiasis must complete long-term follow-up to prevent bladder carcinoma.
