Schistosoma Japonicum


Presentation

  • A case of human schistosomiasis from Phichit Province is presented. Schistosome eggs were found in the ileo-caecal mass of a 44-year old woman, native of Sak-Lek, Muang District.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Spleen Disease
  • We investigated blood and spleen FOXP3 Tregs in Chinese fishermen with lifelong exposure to Schistosoma japonicum and various degrees of liver and spleen disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Amyloidosis
  • Amyloidosis was suspected and rectal biopsy revealed schistosome eggs, some contained miracidia with varying degrees of degeneration, some were empty and/or fragmented shells and were surrounded with fibrotic changes and chronic cellular infiltration[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Splenectomy
  • Splenectomy improves symptoms and was associated with decreases in blood FOXP3 Treg (-2.5; p[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Constipation
  • She had a significant past medical history of asymptomatic schistosomiasis japonica and constipation. A colonoscopy showed an exophytic fragile neoplasm with an ulcerating surface in the sigmoid colon.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Jaundice
  • He presented with jaundice and computed tomography showed a 4-cm, hypodense tumor in segment VIII of the liver. Microscopically, the resected mass was composed of well-differentiated adenocarcinoma cells.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

Echinococcus Multilocularis
  • We retrieved and culled the redundant protease sequences of Schistosoma japonicum, Schistosoma mansoni, Echinococcus multilocularis, and Clonorchis sinensis from public databases utilizing bioinformatic approaches.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Colonic Ulcer
  • Succeeding pathological analysis demonstrated the diagnosis of sigmoid colonic ulcerative tubular adenocarcinoma, and showed deposited ova of Schistosoma japonicum in both tumor lesions and mesenteric lymph nodes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Polyps
  • The colonoscopy revealed that there were two sigmoid colon polyps, approximately 8 mm in diameter. These were removed by endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • […] provided by ZooBank scientific name Schistosoma japonicum status new species Treatment Schistosoma japonicum ZBK, new species This treatment is a stub.[treatment.plazi.org]
  • This ELISA assay was used to test 45 matching sera of schistosomiasis patients before treatment and at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months posttreatment. Among the sera, 88.89 % were positive before treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • In schistosomiasis endemic areas, this rare etiology needs to be considered in cases of intestinal perforation. Peer-review The authors have described a case of perforation of small intestine caused by Schistosoma japonicum.[wjgnet.com]

  • Etiology: The trematodes (flukes). Schistosomes are flukes that inhabit the portal vascular system. All species have similar life cycles.[meddean.luc.edu]
