This when he finds himself becoming the chattel and bondsman of a Trinidadian woman who professes herself proficient in both.

Address Address is required. To complete the picture, migrating larvae of other parasitic agents have been associated with pyogenic abscesses.
Liver abscesses have been described in patients infected with Toxocara canis visceral larva migrans and intestinal nematodes Rayes et al. Tropical pyomyositis pyogenic muscle abscesses caused by S. Similar pathogenetic mechanisms may be operating on these cases.
Neuroschistosomiasis - As in other organs affected by schistosomal infection, the periovular granulomatous reaction in the central nervous system comprises three stages: necrotic-exudative, productive and a stage of healing by fibrosis. These stages represent a modulation of the immune response to parasite antigens as the disease evolves from the acute to the chronic stage Pitella Neurological symptoms over the course of acute schistosomiasis are frequently accompanied by fever and eosinophilia Wood et al.
Patients may become confused, develop focal or generalised seizures or become stuporose. Diagnosis is usually confirmed by surgical brain biopsy because differential diagnosis with brain tumour, based on clinical and imaging aspects, is difficult. Schistosomal myeloradiculopathy SMR is caused by the inflammatory reaction accompanying the deposition of eggs in the venules located in and around the spinal cord. Analysis of the cerebral spinal fluid of SMR patients reveals slight to moderate increases in protein content, lymphocytosis and eosinophils Neves et al.
Whirling disease revisited: Pathogenesis, parasite biology and disease intervention
Characteristically, the illness starts with a burning pain in the lumbar region that radiates to the lower limbs, followed by weakness, flaccid paralysis and sensory loss. The pain usually subsides with the onset of paraplegia Silva et al. Tendon reflexes in the legs usually cannot be elicited and dysfunction of the bladder and rectal sphincters are common. Men become impotent Lambertucci et al. Following treatment with schistosomicides and corticosteroids, the alterations observed by MRI disappear as the clinical condition of the patient improves Silva et al.
Occasionally, the neurological symptoms may return after stopping treatment, but as soon as treatment is re-started, the signs and symptoms of SMR disappear. Acute over chronic infection. Katayama syndrome caused by S. We recently examined two male patients 18 and 19 years old with chronic schistosomiasis who were re-infected in the stream waters of a gold mine near Belo Horizonte unpublished observations. They were admitted to different hospitals for investigation of an FUO and both presented fever, diarrhoea and emaciation.

One patient died and autopsy showed a liver with typical Symmers fibrosis but with a miliary distribution of ova of S. The other patient, treated with steroids and oxamniquine, survived. In a fragment of his liver obtained by percutaneous ultrasound-guided biopsy, similar microscopic findings were described. Both patients probably had severe re-infection with dissemination of ova facilitated by the presence of portal hypertension and portasystemic shunts.
Serology for diagnosing acute schistosomiasis. Soluble egg antigen, worm antigen and the cathionic fraction 6 display high sensitivity but low specificity. An ELISA test using keyhole limpet haemocyanin as the antigen has been shown to be efficient in differentiating acute from chronic schistosomiasis in patients living in endemic areas of Egypt and Brazil Rabello While these tests may be useful for diagnosing patients from non-endemic areas visiting endemic areas, in general, antibody-based methods suffer from low specificity, persistence after chemotherapy, cross-reactivity and the need for reference centre to perform them.
Antigen capture with monoclonal antibodies is expensive and reproducibility of the method is not good. Two main approaches have been proposed for the treatment of acute schistosomiasis:. Schistosomicides alone - Oxamniquine and praziquantel are potent schistosomicides against mature S. However, they present low efficacy against immature worms both in man and in experimentally infected mice Lambertucci et al. Schistosomicides may be used alone in asymptomatic patients.
Treatment should be repeated months later in patients still passing eggs in the stools. A deterioration or exacerbation of the clinical picture after treatment has been reported Chou et al. Asymptomatic patients may become symptomatic, emboli of dead worms may end up in the liver or lungs with rebound liver pain, pulmonary symptoms and radiological alterations and antigens liberated by dead worms may form immune complexes and cause vasculitis or urticaria.
The efficacy of schistosomicides is also immune-dependent Doenhoff et al. Association of steroids and schistosomicides - Clinical and experimental evidence indicate that steroids act synergistically with schistosomicides in the treatment of acute schistosomiasis Lambertucci et al. We usually give prednisone followed by oxamniquine or praziquantel Table V. The association of steroids and schistosomicides in the treatment of symptomatic patients augments the cure rate, speeds the recovery time, prevents the recurrence of symptoms and improves the quality of medical care.
Artemisinin derivatives. Artemisinins by themselves have been successfully used as antischistosomals in some special circumstances e. Artemether seems to be a promising treatment for acute schistosomiasis because it is active against juvenile worms. Nevertheless, in humans, the efficacy against Schistosoma haematobium seems to be moderate N'Goran et al. There is a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations of acute schistosomiasis in humans.
Physicians of different medical specialties, including neurology, lung diseases, dermatology, internal medicine and gastroenterology, must be trained to recognise acute schistosomiasis. Groups at risk for acquiring it tourists, military personnel, religious congregations and people practicing water sports must be alerted and advised about the disease and its complications. Additionally, physicians of endemic and non-endemic countries are not aware of the importance of acute schistosomiasis and of its multiform clinical presentation.

Acute schistosomiasis: clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic features. This depends on domains inherited from the behavior of branching processes in random environment BPRE and given by the bivariate value of the means of parasite offsprings. In one of these domains, the convergence of proportions holds in probability, the limit is deterministic and given by the Yaglom quasistationary distribution. Moreover, we get an interpretation of the limit of the Q-process as the size-biased quasistationary distribution.
