Schistosomiasis of the appendix in the UK.
Jones HJ., Ibrahim AE., Deroda JK.
Schistosomiasis is endemic in many parts of the world but is rare in the UK. It usually affects the bladder or intestine, resulting in bleeding and fibrosis. However, schistosomal eggs are frequently found in the appendix and these can be symptomatic. The present case describes appendiceal infestation accompanied by acute appendicitis.
